My guitar is perfectly tuned and the bridge angle is dead on.
I've been trying to intonate now.
On every site i visited including www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup
, floydrose.com there is a step that is ignored imho and it's screwing my attempt to intonate my guitar..
"1. Determine if the intonation of the string you wish to change is sharp or flat
2. ...loosen the string until it is limp.
3. Loosen the attachment screw holding the saddle to the bridge plate while holding the saddle in place. Move the saddle in the desired direction....
4. Re-tune the string and check the intonation again...
5. Repeat this cycle until each string is properly intonated.
?!?!? But when you loose the string until it is limp (1), set the intonation on that string(2,3), and re-tune again (4) the other five strings are not perfectly tuned again..
So... Should i tune them perfectly again? This will not move the bridge angle again and screw the intonation on the string??
How about the position of the guitar? I've tried to set everything with the guitar perpendicular to the ground... None of the sites mention this (except www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup
, but not in the intonation chapter)...
I'm getting crazy! I've tried everything with no sucess. I HATE a guitar when its badly intonated, even slightly...
I need to intonate the guitar myself, guitar tech's here are a nightmare... I serious doubt if they can tune the A string to 440....
I hope anyone can help me..
