set-up question

i really ought to know this, or at least be able to figure it out via physics, but i have a question.

 

having recently installed a new bridge, my intonation is slightly off. now, if the fretted note at the 12th fret is sharp of the natural harmonic at the 12th fret does the saddle get moved towards the bridge or toward the nut?

Eeeeeehhhhhhhhh.

Simple, isn't it?

Harmonics will get you 99% of the way there.

However, you'll find sometimes on the lower strings that, because of compromises in fret placement...

:eek: Nope, I better not say anything. Never mind. No one will notice anyway. Just crank it up.

Um, Novax, Buzz Feiten...

 

Might as well relocate those frets while you're at it Ace! :thu:
