    How does one intonate a fretted ABD, with an acoustic style bridge?


    Thanks, H2

    Are you talking about a builder, a repairman, or a player?

    As a player, there's pretty much nothing you can do to adjust the intonation of the ABG, any more than you can adjust the intonation on acoustic guitars. You may find that some strings intonate better than others on your particular instrument, though.
