Intonation question

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by basschips, Oct 17, 2004.


  1. When I intonate my bass, I notice that above the 14th. fret the notes tend to go sharp and even sharper the higher I go up the fretboard all the way to the 24th. fret. I intonate with a Peterson Strobostomp and the 12th. fret it is in tune. This is particularly true of my B and E strings. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Is some variation in the pitch normal? I believe this variation is considerable, though.

    Thanks,

    Chip
