Yeah, that's literally impossible.

I don't have a problem with it slipping out of tune too much but the intonation is always off. I figure it's a fretboard problem, I wanna get on of these:

There's too many problems than just how you restring it. There's problems with the bridge, saddles, nut, frets, neck bow, if the string is wound (specifically for the G string), etc etc.

In other words, no.

Temperature and atmosphere will always change the tuning of a guitar. What will NOT change the tuning of the guitar are the strings slipping due to bending and stretching during playing. A guitar may go out of tune using my method, but it will not go out of tune due to the strings slipping. It will go out of tune due to outside forces.

"Temperature and atmosphere will always change the tuning of a guitar"

It looks really dumb and it fails at solving the problem.

Stringed instruments will always be out of tune whenever they're played because plucked strings vibrate. That vibration induces oscillating tension on the string, pulling it sharp. The harder you pick, the more pronounced the effect is. No amount of fret compensation can mitigate that because that's just the temperament of a stringed instrument.

Maybe it would be worth having fret compensation if intonation was a mammoth problem for even a well set-up instrument, but in most circumstances it isn't. It's never perfect, but it's often a decent approximation. Guitars, as stringed instruments go, actually intonate quite accurately.

Temperature and humidity. You forgot them.

It's impossible to find an acoustic instrument that doesn't have that problem. It's a given.

How to string a guitar so it never goes out of tune...smash it against a tree and give up playing guitar forever, problem solved.

That's how you tune a Chevy.

Works every time...

On a different note, I just learned about the evertune bridge system...I feel like I'm so behind the times, looks like the greatest thing ever for tuning stability.

Too bad its so expensive and so hideous.
