go into a guitar shop and ask them to set it up for you
"Tuning... who the f*** needs tuning?!"
#5
Intonation. If not that, maybe you're putting too much/little pressure on the string?
Signatures are overrated.
#8
as far as i know the inotation is how well it is tuned all the way down the neck if that makes sense, to check it play the open string and if its in tune then go down to the 12th fret (a octave up) and play the note, if that isnt in tune with the open string then youll need to adjust it

Do you even know what trolling is?

Definitely sounds like an intonation problem. You could just do it yourself. There a tutorial on this website. Search it up in the columns section.

Intonation is when the guitar is tuned differently as you go higher up the fretboard, one way to see if if you have an accurate tuner check your tuning at open and then try it at the 12th fret, best bet is to bring it in and have it all set up properly.

your truss rod might need adjusting, your neck might be too convex or concave, thats what happened to mine, then i adjusted the truss rod, and now it sounds great

Honestly I was just joking, sorry I came off like an ass but yeah I'd say it's intonation, that really had my guitar f'd up for a while. Maybe take it to a shop this time, but you should really learn how to do it yourself, it's about the easiest thing to do and doesn't take long at all.

if ur guitar is out of tune at the 12th fret, it will make ur solos sound wrong.


SETTING INTONATION: from icepoint...
Most electric guitars provide individual string length adjustment for setting intonation. Fine tuning this length insures that your guitar plays in tune all the way up and down the neck.

Using an electronic tuner, tune your guitar to pitch.
One string at a time, play the harmonic at the 12th fret and then play the fretted 12th fret note.
If the fretted note is sharper than the harmonic, increase the string length slightly until both notes register the same on your tuner.
If the fretted note is flat compared to the harmonic shorten the string length slightly until both notes register the same on your tuner.
Repeat the procedure on all strings until the harmonic and the fretted notes are the same


# 2 in the picture.

if you cant get a harmonic then compare the open string to the fretted 12th.
and retune the open string after each adjustment.
