ok EG forum ive got 2 mayor problems...MAJOR!

1st... i cant seem to intonate my guitar, no matter how much i increase the string distance, the tuner always shows the same diference between the 12th fret harmonic and the 12th fret pressed down note, i already lowererd my pups, and i tried it with brand new strings....plz help

2nd, my amp(bugera 333xl 212) has INSANE amounts of feedback, it didnt have it when i left for vacations, and no matter where i touch the guitar the feedback wotn stop, but when i touch the cable or any metal component on the amp, the feedback goes away, i recently dismantled my guitar, took it all apart, and the the grounding wire is attached to the pickguard and the pickguard just fell off pulling lots of wire, so it may be that...]]


thanks please reply


btw dont bother calling me an idiot for taking my guitar apart, i realized i was one long ago

1. Are you retuning the open string between each adjustment? If you can't get the 12th fret harmonic and the 12th fret to match, set the 12th fretted note to match the open string.

the feedback is because your guitar has single coils and is badly shielded

If the amp cuts noise when you touch the metal casing around it, turn it off NOW and get a pro to fix, cos that That sounds like a ground fault to me and could be dangerous. I'm not sure about where the ground fault could be, but if you can get hold of a multimeter and measure between hot and ground to see if there's a short anywhere. It could be(now, i'm not sure of this) that your sudden noise is the result of a loose ground wire inside your guitar. In any case, when you have single coils you should get the cavity shielded. Dress the inside with some heavy duty tinfoil, and connect ground to it. (I'm serious )

As for the intonation, are you sure you're moving it the right way? shortening the string leans lean you more towars sharp, and lengthening leans you toward flat.

the \12th armonic is perfectly in tune, while the fretted note is sharper, so i increase the string length

harmonics will always( at least i think) stay the same, if the open string is up to pitch. i -THINK-
oh, and are you sure you're not fretting down to hard? I know it's a stupid question, but it should be asked.
