My guitar has gone through some trauma these past few weeks. It was out in my same-as-outdoor temperature sunroom for a weekend, and it was some 40*F outside! ohmy.gif It's mostly good, except the high e string's intonation is 100% out of whack past the twelfth fret, ruining each and every note I play on it. It stinks pretty bad. I should have taken better care of it.

There's really nothing I can do to it. I moved the bridge saddle up until it couldn't go any further, and it still sounds just as much like a sharp e flat as a flat e. It's probably the neck that warped or something, and it would cost a lot to fix it, probably more than the guitar is even freaking worth.

On the brighter side, my guitar that I'm building is all in place, but not actually attatched yet. I should be working on it the next few weekends though. I have a feeling that I will take care if it better, due to the price tag (which will remain confedential... wink.gif )


ps You don't really have to give advice, I just posted this on here to jabber about it to somebody. tongue.gif

I spelled my username wrong...I didn't even think that was possible!

Look at the topic for my guitar...
Finished Guitar Build

Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)

Just so I can brag a moment,
my guitar isn't susceptible to any weather damage.
Partial because its made out of composite fiber though!
Wood is overrated. tongue.gif
