So since I got it at a discount price, I noticed this Yamaha I have won't tune properly. Specifically if I tune the strings to a perfect EADGBE (using a good digital tuner), then I cross check the strings with each other (5th fret -> open), some of the notes don't match up very well.
The biggest problem is when I play the 4th fret on the G string, the B produced there on that G string is too high, its still a B but its at the high end of the B range on the digital tuner.
You have 4 options:
- Play with each string tuned so they are correct when open (digital tuner)
- Open tune, then adjust so "cross tune" matches (this seems to sound the best, but some chords are off)
- Fix it somehow? (Is this possible?)
- Throw the guitar out
