I got my new Stagg James Neligan electro acoustic yesterday and it plays lovely.

But today I noticed that the G string sounds out of tune when playing chords.

So, is there any way this can be adjusted....?

I had already made a topic about this a few months ago......

Just wondering if anybody has any other tips?

Many thanks,

there really arnt any good ways to adjust the intonation on acoustics thats why guitar selection is important. i guess the only option is tuning your g string sharp of flat depending on how off it is.

how strait is the neck? what gauge strings are you using? if your using light strings you may not be flexing the neck enough. if they are too heavy it might be too much.

the only other option is to take the guitar to a shop and get a new saddle that changes the possitioning of the g string.

Thanks for the info.
The guitar is strung with 12 guauge Daddarios.

Now they do feel a little old and worn, so maybe the guitar just needs a nice new set?

But chords sound so 'off', when all the strings are tuned

This is really annoying me.
Should I take it back to the store?

Try a new set of strings on if first. That might be all it takes to remedy the problem.

Worst comes to worst, you need to break out the sandpaper and compensate the G string. It's not terribly difficult. No more difficult than creating a compensated pocket for the B string on a bone saddle.

But yes, try your strings, first.

If you just got is it's probably not the intonation. Could be a string is bad or you need to tune it. I change my strings every 2-3 weeks. It's amazing how much you don't notice the strings have deteriorated until you put new ones on. New ones stay in tune better.

I put a set of Elixirs 11 on it and the intonation was fine on the every string except the b string and low e.

Ive got a pack of Martins 11 and Daddario 12s so im going to try them out when the Elixirs are done.

You can get away with playing and not notice the chords sounding off most of the time, but id prefer everything to sound right.
