Okay, well I made a thread a while back about how I was going to get my guitar set up for C standard at my local shop. Well the guy there told me that on the frets 11-24, it probably would be about a quarter step out of tune because my guitar wasnt a baritone, is this a major issue? It's a washburn X40 Pro if you're wondering, and is this true?

My things:
Bowes SLx7
Washburn WG587
Washburn X40Pro
Washburn X50
Washburn HM24
Washburn WR150
Laguna LE200s
Arietta Acoustic

Well, that sounds like an intonation problem indeed.

The fact that your guitar isn't a baritone doesn't make it impossible to have the intonation set properly.

If you don't know how to do this:

1) tune a string using an electric tuner; make sure it's perfectly in tune

2) compare the 12th fret harmonic with the fretted 12th fret, again using a tuner

3) if the two notes are slightly apart, adjust the saddle a little, retune and check again

4) repeat this for all the strings


That should get it set up pretty nicely. Personally I have a Fender Strat tuned to B without any real intonation issues.
