Red face G string will not tune.

I have an rg 220b and it sounds great, except the g string. I have set it up, intonation etc,like many others before and haven't had this problem. All strings except G will tune and stay in tune perfectly. Can anyone please give me some advice?

I reset the intonation ......again! Finally nailed it. Sounds as good as my usa made one now, after better pickups.

Re: G string will not tune.

The thing is that you should never use "G-string" over here. There are so many frustrated people on this board, who would love to play with a G-string but haven't had the opportunity. Next time use "4th string from the top".

On the other hand no other advice would have helped. Good to know it was "just" intonation.

Re: G string will not tune.

I was gonna suggest to try stretching the string in question out, but looks like you fixed it.

Re: G string will not tune.

Count me in on the smart asses though. I'm equally frustrated. In the summer over here, oh so many ladies on bikes...
