In this episode of "Gibson's Guide to Guitar Setup and Maintenance," Gibson Master Luthier Jim DeCola demonstrates the correct way to adjust the intonation of your electric guitar. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned professional, Jim will give you pro tips on intonation adjustment and how to set it properly that will make the process easy and efficient.
The intonation on your guitar has a dramatic impact on how "in-tune" it will sound at various positions on the neck. If the intonation is not properly adjusted, your guitar will sound out of tune as you move between different chords and positions. While totally perfect intonation isn't achievable, Jim's expert tips will help you maximize the accuracy of your guitar's intonation, resulting in an instrument that sounds sweeter and more in-tune across all playing positions.
