You need to re-set up the guitar (raising the action and examining the neck bow regulated by the trus rod) to fix the problem.

It doesn't sound like you need to adjust the intonation but re-check it after raising the bridge just to be sure.


I was wondering how the weather would affect it. Although we do not use our heater here in SoCal (no need) the temps have been changing somewhat drastically, Friday it was 85 and today it was 48.

It was the trus rod that needed adjustment so a little bit of a tweak and it is all good now. I figured since I just set the thing up a few weeks ago I would not need to adjust the rod, guess I did. duh :o

Thanks for the input all.
