my epi les paul studio's inotation is out on high e string. my problem is that the saddle is as far forward as it will go (and it needs to go further)! so guitar gurus ............HELP!!!
#2
how fresh are the strings?

how out of tune is it all the way up?

and how are you intonating?

you could always try a longer screw in the saddle
but there's probably something more serious going on

the saddle can only be moved so far on a tom bridge (or any bridge)

i agree with jj165 it`s probably the TS`s method

^in some cases where the nut was cut wrong in the factory, then flipping the saddle to face the direction you need to move can add the wiggle room needed to intonate.

But, yeah, most of the time it's old strings, or the way you're intonating.

they are ernie ball power slinkys. 1 month old. it isn't horribly far out just a bit off on 12th fret (harmonic). my guitar teacher spotted it earlier and did harmonics at 12th fret. said he would try again next week...(fingers crossed) nah he knows what he's doing. just was a bit too deep in thought thats all.

is it sharp at the 12th or flat?

Dont do harmoic innotation, just fret it at the 12th fret and if its not exactly the same as the open note then adjust the saddle accordling. I think if its sharp you go in, and if its flat you go out. You dont have to get it exactly on the button, but very close.

toms have space limits.


strats can be manipulated to a point, but only in one direction.
