Hey guys, just here asking about something I noticed while playing my guitar earlier.
For some STRANGE, WTF-WORTHY reason, any note I fret after the 3rd fret will be out of tune, and they become increasingly out of tune the further up the neck I move.
For example, if i fret the 7th fret on the 3rd string, the note I should get should be a D, (assuming i'm playing in E standard, for the sake of this post) right? Well, apparantly not. It sounded off so i checked it with my tuner and it was out. I tried again, still the same. I get the same thing on every string, on every fret past the 3rd fret.
I've checked the intonation, perfect. The strings are definitely in tune before I lock the tremolo, and i check them after for good measure, still in tune. Then I play (hell, even a simple power chord) past the 3rd fret and it sounds out of tune.
The only thing I can think of is that the neck is bowed slightly. Apart from that i'm stumped.
Somebody help, please?
