fngrpepr Posted September 23, 2010 Report Share Posted September 23, 2010 So I picked up an inexpensive guitar which I am using for a rebuild project. I stripped it down and repainted, and am planning to replace the plastic nut with a bone nut. I have the nut roughed out, but have this problem -- I tune the string to pitch, and confirm that the harmonic at the 12th fret is also in pitch, but when I fret the note at the 12th fret (or fret any note for that matter) the pitch is sharp. To confirm the problem didn't lie with my new nut, I put the old plastic nut back on... and same problem. So what's my problem? Is it string height? The strings are kind of high.
