View Full Version : Soprano tuning goes sharp up the neck

09-21-2013, 06:35 PM
So I've got a soprano Pono MS that goes sharp up the neck:

A - 8 cents sharp @ 12th fret
E - 25 cents sharp @ 12th fret
C - 40 cents sharp @ 12th fret
G - 15 cents sharp @ 12th fret

So I've had this for a few months and hadn't played it much but I've tried different strings and I seem to get similar results. It's just starting to bother me and I was wondering what things i could try.

I'm thinking about lowering the saddle a bit and seeing how that affects tuning. Would anyone recommend compensating the saddle? If so, are there any good videos or notes on that?
