"0G 1G# 2A 3A#, the 3d fret on the G-string should sound an A#, not an A 0E 1F 2F# 3G 4G# 5A, the 5th fret on the E string should be an A not a D can you post a pic of the fingerboard please?"

Ron "Oily" Sprague replied to Jim Talley's discussion Fretted Tones/Pitch
"Hmm. Sounds to me like either the first or second fret is too high, needs to be re crowned or reset (a common enough problem with many fretted CBGs, having to reseat or recrown frets). Try this when you get home: using the edge of a credit card,…"

Fretted Tones/Pitch

I am very new to CBG having just purchased my first one. I have played 6 string guitar for a while. While my ear is not the best I do have some ability to appreciate the correct pitch of intended notes. I tune my CBG and it is in tune open and at the 12th fret. But virtually every fretted note toward the nut is at least a half step off. Is this just the way it is with CBGs? I don't know if the frets were incorrectly placed or if the nature of the instrument is simply to be somewhat in a general…See More
