So I just took my electric guitar to have the intonation sorted out, but my question is why does it go out and is there anyway to prevent it or is it just one of those things?
Punctuation it the difference between:
"I help my Uncle Jack off a horse."
and
"i helped my uncle jack off a horse"

string guage, string changes, neck movement, any number of factors can affect intonation.... It's usually a good idea to keep tabs on it and make adjustments if necessary after string changes..

Ok. I changed the strings on it a couple of months ago, but it was fine until just this week. Everything has been fine though. Wierd....

I was just gonna make a post on this so I might ask it here

ive just set up my intonation as the local guitar shop doesnt sell the same strings as they used to (so different gauge)

all of the strings are perfect exept the 3rd (yeah I know, the G-string)
but it's just a little bit (about +10 on my tuner)

should I just ignore this or will I try to get it perfect?
(it's a cheap guitar, ibanez gax30)

cheers

It's always a good idea to keep your guitar intoned... I mean it's ultimately to get the best performance out of your instrument... It doesn't take that much time at all(except floyd roses can be somewhat of a hassle)... I haven't had to adjust the intonation of any of my guitars but a few times with minor adjustments..... Get the best out of your guitar.... take the time to make sure it's set up right.... Never hurts
