    This quote is from there downloadable manual: " On the base plate there are 2 holes for each saddle lock screw. These allow the user to change string guages while allowing the maximum saddle movement. If the intonation cannot be adjusted because the saddle needs to be set back further, remove the intonation screw and insert it into the hole located further back on the bridge plate." This would effectively give you an increase or decrease in scale length wouldn't it?

Hi there. Use guitar tuner. Pluck string in open position. Tune. Now pluck same string at 12th fret. If tuner says flat, adjust bridge for that string towards neck. Towards bridge if sharp. Repeat procedure until in tune at open and 12th fret. Go to next string and repeat procedure.
Thanks
Paul

Might be best to learn how intonation is worked out so you can spend some time doing it yourself. I used raeguitars guide, found it to be pretty good!

What is my Ibanez acoustic guitar worth?


I my market, I see used ones in good shape go for $250. Your market may vary. Of course the condition of your particular guitar is a factor, as well as the market you're in. Music Go Round is asking $289 for one, but I expect it will really sell for $250.

I have a Ibanez V Series V70CE. It play well. But sometimes when I connect it to the amplifier, there seems to be loose connection and no sound is heard. When I move the wire little bit sound come...


Many try to use poor quality guitar cables and have the problem. The sleeve of the guitar cable plug turns on the battery in the guitar. Always loop the guitar cable through your belt or the guitar strap to avoid the cable wisting the plug in the guitar causing noise and WEAR that wears the plug sleeve to the point it no longer will activate the guitar.

I have an EDB 600 here and some of the wiring is detached; I would love to find some sort of diagram of the wiring so I know how to put it back together!


Try here for a 2004 EDB600. Newer years don't show up but they are probably pretty similar.

Bridge: the guitar keeps getting out of tune. Should I block it with a piece of wood, making it more like a fixed bridge?


Do NOT modify the guitar. Take it to a shop where they can set it up properly if you are having intonation or clearance problems. Also the quality of strings has a lot to do with changes in tuning. It is NOT uncommon for a guitar to require tuning during a half hour of playing. This is normal, especially if you are really driving it. Temperature affects the tuning drastically as well.

Sounds like you need to get it intonated. Take it to your local guitar shop tell them your problem and where you'd like your strings to sit or that straight neck of yours won't be like that for long.

I bought a Hagstrom Ultra Swede which sounded very nice when I first bought it but after 3 months I seem to have alot of tuning problems with it. It has been intonated twice and a new set of heavier...


Considerations:

1. Intonation problems can be due to worn strings even if the guitar is set up properly. New Strings can fix this. This is the most common problem.

2. Also, changing string size may effect your set up too. Typically, new guitars come with lighter strings such as (9's) which the guitar is set up for. The positive is that 9's fret easily. The negative is that they bend too easily for some players who either slightly bend them when chording (accidentally), or press too hard on guitars with jumbo sized frets, which in turn bends the string toward the fret board causing detuning. To fix these items folks may suggest you get a heavier string like a (10), but the problem can often be solved by playing with a lighter hand, pressing only enough to make contact with the fret and not pressing the string all the way to the fretboard. Check your intonation using this light touch method and see if it's okay verses pressing the string all the way to the fretboard. If the intonation is okay with the light touch, the guitar intonation is set up properly. You may want to consider playing with a lighter hand or getting a guitar without jumbo frets such as Fender strats etc...

Putting a heavier string on a guitar set up for (9's) would likely cause the buzzing that wasn't there before. In this case you'd need the guitar and neck set up again to accomodate the 10's. So decide what size string you want and set the guitar up for that size.

These considerations are true for any electric guitars.

After consideration of all of the above, you still feel it's the guitar, I suggest you push for a replacement or perhaps credit toward another guitar.
