    I have a "Feitenized" Warmoth guitar that has taken a small fall. Just shifted the neck a bit, but now I can notice that the intonation is not like it was before. I have no "Feiten techs" around where I'm at.

    Anyone here have instructions on doing a setup on a Feiten system? I have a Korg DT-7 tuner with the compensations built in.

    My question is: With the DT-7, is it okay to intonate as a normal setup? or is there more to it?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Just intonate as you would with a regular set up using the tuner in the Feiten mode.

    Thanks!!

    This gets me to what I need. Now I can check how severly things got shifted.

    Since my DT7 (in Buzz mode) has the compensations built in for open string tuning, it sounds like I should not use the buzz mode for intonating. Exactly what I needed to know!!!

    I knew somebody out here would help me out... thanks again.

    Found this on the Peterson Forum and it's what I've been using. It differs slightly from what KLB posted. I don't know which is correct, but thought I would pass this along.

    Settings to be entered into P-1:
    Note________Open String Offsets
    E___________________00.0
    B__________________+01.0
    G__________________-02.0
    D__________________-02.0
    A__________________-02.0
    E__________________-02.0 (on VS-II and V-SAM tuners, use F = -2)

    Settings to be entered into P-2:
    Note__________12th Fret Offsets
    E___________________00.0
    B___________________00.0
    G__________________+01.0
    D__________________+01.0
    A___________________00.0
