Thread Name: Keeping my Martin in tune
Subject: RE: Keeping my Martin in tune
I've tried half a dozen brands of string on my Taylor and every one of them has been right on, so I know it's not the strings. They do, however, get difficult when they get old. (Sorta like some people I know)
My Martin gave me intonation problems no matter what I used for strings. My old Gibson, same thing. Finally had to have a luthier make a compensated bridge, no more problem.
If you ever see Dave Mallett in performance he may be playing that old Gibson.
