It could be, I'm still learning how to make guitar nuts. Yeah, I make my own.
Stop fiddlin' with yer nuts!
I was responding to 101Volts and not the OP. OP's issue sounds like he's just hearing the guitar for what it is... out of friggen tune. Well, all but that low E thing. That's weird!
could indeed be setup issues, but the thing is, that low E may well be out of tune with itself!
a bad string, or one that's sitting on bad nut and saddle slots, can actually have its upper harmonics be a little sharp compared to its own fundamental. your tuner reads the fundamental, but your ear hears the upper harmonics more.
this is especially true of bigger, lower-tuned strings and shorter-scale instruments.
piano tuners live in a whole world of this phenomenon, where they have to decide which set of harmonics on a given string they want to be in tune with other sets of harmonics on other given strings!
This is correct.
I find that a nice loud drummer and bass player cover up the tuning issues quite nicely....
No kidding??? Thats insane!!
You learn something every day....thanks for this one!!
