    I just noticed that the intonation is all screwed up on my E, A and D strings from the 12th fret up. Seems kind of weird that it's fine until you get up the neck, but I don't really know how all that mumbo-jumbo works. Anyway, how exactly do you go about adjusting the intonation on a lo-pro 7? I think thats what it's called, the trem on the RG7620.

    Thanks

    From the Ibanez owners manual:

    "Adjusting the intonation is performed by moving the individual string saddles forwar or backward. To check the intonation: Use an electronic tuner and tune the guitar to a standard pitch." (or really whatever tuning you use)

    "Note: All Ibanez guitars use A=440hz for a standard pitch. Play the harmonic at the 12th fret, compare it to the fretted note at the 12th fret, these notes should read the same on the tuner.
    Before adjusting the intonation, first determine the direction that the saddles needs to be moved.
    Note: If the 12th fret harmoic pitch is lower than the fretted note, the saddle needs to be moved back. If the 12th fret harmonic is higher than the fretted note, the saddle needs to be moved forward."

    Apart from what it says in the ibanez owners manual, i'd hit up rich at ibanezrules to see if he has any intonation tools left, as they are stupidly useful!

    (ie, less hair loss incurred during intionation adjustments)
