Caevan O’Shite Posted July 21, 2022 Share Posted July 21, 2022 A question for those of you who have or have had 12-String electric guitars with twelve adjustable saddles: On those courses that have two of the same gauge strings, tuned to the same pitch (NOT an octave)- -did one of those two saddles ever need to be adjusted even slightly differently from the other for both strings to intonate properly? I was just wondering if those unison-doubled courses- the non-octave pairs- could be fine if sharing a single saddle.If so, maybe a ten-saddle arrangement would do for many electric 12's? As in | 2 | 2 | 2 | 2 | 1 | 1 | , for | EE | AA | DD | GG | BB | EE | , respectively (BB and EE being the plain-treble unison pairs), low-to-high... Just kickin' the ball around here, thinkin' thoughts thunk... Waddaya say? How was it with your guitars? 2 Quote Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do? ~ Caevan James-Michael Miller-O'Shite ~ _ ___ _ Leprechaun, Esquire _ ___ _ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
