Hi, when I try to fix the intonation on my SG, the A and D strings will never go in tune when played at the 12th fret. This problem is very frustrating when I try to play solo's because it sounds really badly out of tune. I'm using 10 gauge strings if this makes any difference.

Is there anyway to fix this????

If anybody could help it would be awesome,

Cheers

my guess is it is either your strings unless you have changed them, or most likely you need anew neck

I have changed my strings recently. There is no more space left to adjust the intonation which is slightly confusing.

i say take it to a professional (local shop or something) and see if they can help you.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

If the saddles are at the limits of their adjustment and still cant intonate then the neck may have not been set right. Not that epi would ever do such a thing. I had to sand the heel of the neck on my LP 100 to get it to intonate. Bit hard to do with a set neck. The gotoh bridge has more intonation adjustment than the regular TOM bridge. You can try that. This is one of the reasons epis can be hit or miss on being a good playing guitar.

I've seen a video where Dan Erlewine mods a tonepros so the bridge intonates correctly.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

My guitar used to be the same. Try getting the neck 100% straight and messing with the action, you can probably manage to get perfect intonation.

Thanks for the replies guys, I am going to take it to my local guitar shop soon to have a look at it.
