    Adjusting Intonation (Majesty)

    What do you use to turn the "screw" to adjust the intonation on a Majesty? flat head, phillips, hex (size) etc ??
    Thanks

    I'm quite shocked the guitar didn't come with all the tools to adjust everything. I'd like to know the answer to this too. Maybe EBMM sells a "Majesty Tool Set" or something?

    I know when you buy an Ibanez J-Custom they give you all the tools and a coffee table book on the history of Ibanez. Just sayin'.

    ...in other words, bump!

    Wait a second - you both have a Majesty, right? Can neither of you just look and see what kind of screws they use? My guess would be the same size phillips head you've always used.

    Sorry. There are small access holes in the rear of the cover. I guess it might be helpful if anyone with another JP with piezo trem could share what they use. Probably the same. I am just hesitant to start sticking what might be the wrong tool in there and damaging something. Thanks.

    JP's use small Phillips head screws to adjust intonation. Give that a try.

    It didn't come with a tool set? well.. I'm not sure about you, but I have 5 bazillion allen wrenches from various things.... plus a small tool set that contains all the allen wrenches you will ever need is pretty cheap.. That being said.. ALL of my EBMM guitars have a phillips screw connecting the saddle.

    the correct answer is:
    5/64 allen - intonation
    1.5mm - saddle height

    I would have said I'd eat my hat if they changed the adjustment screws on just one guitar but there you go. I will however express no small amount of surprise.

    Sorry if I was curt yesterday. You cannot damage anything by trying different allen keys or screw drivers. They either fit (and it's obvious when they do) or they don't. And the most likely thing you can do to damage something is dropping a screw driver and scratching the finish.

    Happy whatever-is-left-of-your-Monday. Carry on!
