Hey I got an Epiphone Les Paul and I'm trying to adjust the itonation on it and I've got the E A and D strings fine but when I try to do the G B and E string when I turn the screw to set the string length, the open string is still in tune and the 12th fret is still at the same place. It seems like the screw like isn't working or something.

Any help?

P.S. By the way please don't tell me to go to a pro unless its just about unfixable
Where's Waldo?


yay

detune the string move the saddle then tune up again.

Its more than "just about" unfixable. It is unfixable, but I'm not going to tell you to go to a pro because there is nothing they could do.

The design of most fretted instruments (especially the guitar) makes it physically impossible to have 100% perfect intonation. Believe me, I struggled with this predicament for years... Its just something you have to accept as a guitarist.

^he's saying that his screw/saddle is stuck, or maybe he's intonating wrong or has on old strings.

dont tell him his guitar isnt fixable.
