I just received a mandolin and it tunes up nicely, but when noting the second fret of the g-string (i.e, playing an A) the note is sharp. It seems to be more sharp for one string than the other. And, by the time you get to the 12th fret, they seem back in sync. I first thought the fret wire may be out of wack, but when I note the second fret on the other strings, the notes are true. Can just a portion of the fret wire be off? Can this be at the bridge? What "tests" can I do to narrow down the problem?
Thanks in advance.
