Compinsation


Recommended Posts

Each of the strings sits on a 'saddle'. You can move the saddle backwards and forwards, usually with a screwdriver to adjust the intonation. Have a read of the tutorials here on how to set up a guitar, especially the one here on adjusting the intonation. It's fairly easy to do (just remember to put on new strings!), and you can't really go wrong.

Read the tutorials. Saddle adjustment is simply used to improve intonation in the upper frets. Once you get your intonation set, you tune up your guitar with the tuners. Readjusting the saddles is only done after you remove and reattatch the bridge, change string brands or guage, or something like that.
