I've been having trouble getting my low E and A strings to tune dead on. It seems the tuner jumps all around perfect but never gets there. I asked about it at my local guitar store and the advice I got was to tune to the 12th fret instead of open. I tried that but it doesn't solve the problem and it also makes playing the open strings off.

* Does anyone tune to the 12th?
* What might be causing this problem?

try getting a new tuner or doing it by ear, thats how I do it.


Go Leafs Go!!

Next season anyway
a change of batteries, perhaps? maybe an intonation problem. try to use the neck pickup with the tone knob rolled off, then pluck on the 12th fret.
