Elusive perfect intonation..

Huge EVH fan here. I've noticed that in 99% of his tunes, regardless of what guitar he's using, his intonation and tuning are spot on.

What's the secret?

Re: Elusive perfect intonation..

I'm sorry, but tuning and intonation are some of the most basic components of a guitar setup.

He has a tech setting everything up for him, including the intonation and tuning. Then there's the fact that in the studio -- especially if you own the studio like he does -- you have every opportunity to get it right.

Lastly, when he uses a Floyd, it's flat-mounted.
