Thread: Warren Ellis Mandostang G string out of tune

    Default Warren Ellis Mandostang G string out of tune

    I have the Eastwood Warren Ellis Mandostang, and it's great!

    However, when I play the low A note, on the G string, the pitch fluctuates heavily in and out of tune. I'm not sure why it's doing that?

    Is there a way to fix this?

    Is your G string intonated correctly?

    Either what pops1 asked, IMO more than likely, or your technique has you pushing the G string out of tune. R/

    This is very easy to do on the Mandostang if your left hand is accustomed to acoustic instruments

    It can be your technique, but also check the height of the string at the nut, if the string is too far above the frets, pushing it down on the frets will stretch it sharp. A bit of careful set up work often does wonders for instruments.

    Before you do anything else, try changing the string.
