On my guitar, for the B string, when I play the note at 12th fret, it isn't a B. How do I fix this.

Set your guitar intonation

The screws at the end of the bridge

Yeah, I was doing that before but it did nothing.

because you dont know what youre doing.

take it to a shop and have them do it. I do it at work for like 15-25 dollars.

like he said,

and from icepoint.com
SETTING INTONATION:
Most electric guitars provide individual string length adjustment for setting intonation. Fine tuning this length insures that your guitar plays in tune all the way up and down the neck.

Using an electronic tuner, tune your guitar to pitch.
One string at a time, play the harmonic at the 12th fret and then play the fretted 12th fret note.
If the fretted note is sharper than the harmonic, increase the string length slightly until both notes register the same on your tuner.
If the fretted note is flat compared to the harmonic shorten the string length slightly until both notes register the same on your tuner.
Repeat the procedure on all strings until the harmonic and the fretted notes are the same.

on TOM.. this screw...

ok so itll be the same location as that # 2 screw on the strat.

fret the 12th check with tuner, then get the harmonic on the 12th and compare the readings.

are u saying that u move the screw and sadlle doesnt move?
or that the saddle moves but the tuning dont change.

Is the harmonic at the 12th fret in tune with the open string?

And is the 12th a C, or just a B, but out of tune?

Its best to use a StroboTuner. Theyre more accurate and better for intonating guitars. I dont know if they still make them though...

12th fret harmonic with the 12th fret.

and it would depend on what string
