Hi All,

Is it better to check the intonation with a new set of strings,or does this matter?

Thanks in advance

Depends of how old your current set is,
too old stings have a great chance to be out of tune/intonation,
so be careful. smile.gif

Mee too, I would go for a new set of strings for sure, just to play safe.

It is always good to check the intonation after changing the strings.

You should always check it if you kept one set for long time periods on the guitar or using the same gauge but different brand of strings. On using different gauge you have to do a complete setup.

I'd recommend you to play your new strings for an hour or two so they can feel at home and are stretched out enough.

I suggest growing your hair out, and using them as strings. You can duct tape some strands together for the thicker guage strings. That is sure to get a great tone and stay in tune... I mean um... Marcus Lavendell would probably say to go with some Elixir strings! wink.gif
