Definitely have to do that after putting the strings on, so then it's just reps, and ooh, ah... depends how picky you are, but there are some damn expensive bench tuners out there to help get that intonation done. If she wants to buy you something for Xmas



Gonna need a good, precision tuner anyhoo

O wait it says "Concert A 350-550Hz" so they are saying you can set Concert A to be pretty much whatever. Where were the damn standards boards back in the day?

Yah, what ute said. I'll have to learn that part. I've watched it done, and Pete is there if I need help, but I haven't tried it yet.

Nowadays you can also send your guitar out to be "plek'd" which means they scan the neck and dress the frets and cut the nut by automation, so that it's all accurate and low action and perfect like a human can't do...

https://www.sweetwater.com/shop/guitars/plek/index.php

.... but I knew a dude in the area with 50 guitars, who played with a bunch of people in the area; and I asked whether he had any of them plek'd, and he said yeah but he didn't see a huge difference.

But aren't those imperfections what gives a custom built it's character?

A lot of the classic records we have loved were made with guitars with kind of poor intonation. And we heard the chord a certain way, and maybe that gave the song what it needed.

If it was me, I'd want the perfect one! I want the chords to sound pretty at every fret, and I'll make the imperfections by playing it wrong

I use Da Tuner and it seems pretty good


I've read that those super expensive and accurate jobs are not really necessary. We can't hear that precisely

I ain't as fancy as some of yas.

I have an ancient 9-volt tuner that has to hear the note. It has to be fairly quiet in the room to tune.

This isn't the one I have but, it's basically identical.

I have it that clamps on to the head stock and uses the vibration to indicate the pitch. I hate it.

A buddy has the stick-on tuner on the top bout on the front of his flattop. He changes from standard to drop D to wtfever like rfn.

, a drill press




and a router table.



Today was the first time since Christmas that I've had free.
