    Majesty Intonation Adjustment - Can I Do It Myself?

    Hello:

    Loving the Majesty I bought a few months back. It has been getting GREAT use (around 5-6 hours per day).

    I did finally run into a minor issue though. The intonation of the G string is slightly off. When I play a C chord, it is perfectly in tune. But when I play a D, it is slightly sharp. Then when I play something higher up the neck, it is also off.

    The guitar intonation and tuning stability were immaculate the first couple months of use.

    My questions:

    1. For whatever reason, every guitar I've owned (except one) has had this same intonation issue. So I am assuming it is due to my play style. I play a lot of bluesy shred stuff and bend the G more than any other string. Is this likely the cause?

    2. I told myself that I would always have a professional deal with the Majesty since it is such a high end guitar. But I started thinking it would be nice to learn how to adjust it myself since it will inevitably be an ongoing issue. Is this feasible? Or is it potentially risky to do myself?

    Thank you for any help

    Hi Bellaswail, The intonation on the Majesty is easily adjustable via the screws on the back of the bridge. Tune the string to pitch and then check the pitch at the 12th fret. They should be in tune with each other, one octave apart. I you need detailed help, feel free to shoot me an email at customerexperience@ernieball.com. I'll help you out.

    Hey Daniel, thanks so much! I had no idea it was that easy. On one of my older guitars, I think it was much more of a hassle. I will give it a shot and will email you if I need detailed assistance.
