You want to turn these screws.



Use a tuner to tune the open note to the fretted note on the 12th fret.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

Are you doing it correctly? As in, tune your guitar, then fret on the 12 fret, and if it's sharp or flat, you turn the screw right(if flat) and left(if sharp) and then retune and do it again until it's very close to being the same note when played open and when fretted on the 12th fret.


I may of gotten the directions wrong on which way to turn the screws, idk.

Essentially, after every time you turn the screws, retune the string and check intonation again. Its a very slow process, but be thankful its not a floyd rose trem.

Setting intonation is the last step in a proper setup. If your neck relief and string height are wrong its not going to intonate well, especially if you are trying to do it with old dead strings. It is also hard to intonate if you are tuning lower, as in sometimes the saddles dont go back far enough. Get some new strings and take the right steps before setting intonation, and make sure you strech your strings until they stay at pitch. Also make sure your saddles are at the appropriate radius to correspond with the curve of your fretboard. There are plenty of resources on the internet that will help you through your journey, Good luck.
