  • Hi everybody, welcome to another lesson here on GMC.

    Today I will show you how to check and adjust your guitars intonation. In case you have no idea what a guitars intonation is, in simple words a guitar with a bad intonation will never be in tune properly, so this is something we should definitely avoid.

    Since a lot of things can mess with our guitars intonation (for example changing the string action, using a different gauge of stings, going to a completely different tuning etc.) You should check the intonation from time to time and adjust it in case something is wrong, and I hope this lesson can be a help for you ;-)

    In case you have any question, feel free to contact me.



    PS: The equipment used for this lesson is a Les Paul Slash Goldtop, a set of new strings, a Korg DT-1 tuner and a screwdriver ;-)
