My 12th fret notes are all sharp compared to the open strings. And no matter how much I turn the screws on my brdige it never changes. Whether I turn it left or right..
Your action is likely too high.
Always tin your strings.


Don't be afraid to be honest.
Are you loosening the string before turning the screw??

The following statement is true. The proceeding statement is false.
Sharp? Turn it so the saddle moves further from the neck.
I pick up my guitar and play
Just like Yesterday

T C Ellis Series 2 LP w/Skatterbrane Quiescence pups
Cort EVL-K6
Yamaha RGX211 modded
H&S Electric 12-string
Shaftsbury Ricki 4001
'84 Fender Yale
Roland Cube 15x

I'm having exactly the same problem as kenvy.
The answer is obvious. If only I'd thought about it for a bit.

Thanks for the help.


Just tried it and it didn't make a bit of difference.
Even loosening the string and moving the saddle all the way back, then retuning didn't change a thing.
I tried lowering the action too, but that didn't help either. With low or high action, when fretting the 12th I get a bit of buzzing from the 13th fret.
Guess I'll just have to live with it, or buy a better guitar.

Thanks anyway.

you need to loosen the string so the saddle can move the retune and check.

Thanks man. I'm still adjusting my saddles. My High E, B and D are fixed right now.
