31  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Intonation on: October 20, 2011, 10:17:45 AM
Using my new strobe tuner I have noticed that string intonation requires some adjustment after a couple days on a set of new strings. Is that normal or am I missing something in my method? I even noticed that I get a different reading if I use only fretted notes & harmonics as opposed to open strings in the process. The touch on the neck does seem to have a bearing. 5th / 17th fretted notes seems to be the most reliable.  Thanks in advance.

Hi Blair,

This was from my second batch (I think) of 5 strings and my first 24 fret version.  Probably around 1990.  It may also be the first time we used our current 19mm string spacing and neck width.   We called these, in retrospect,  "Longhorns".   The tip of the horns are the same as the would be on a J-bass, with deeper cutaways.  We then shortened the treble horn on the next batch which resulted in the body shape we have used ever since.

The description on the Low End site is incorrect in that Tom Anderson never made any 5 string parts for me or anyone else.

I have never been able to intonate with anything other than a strobe tuner.  I do not find any significant difference in tuning to the open string or the 12th fret harmonic.  Also very important to play the fretting note with normal playing pressure.

There is one grey wire on the board....
It is labelled "no connection".
That is it....

The grey wire is the N/C which stands for "no connection".  You do not use the grey wire.

Sorry about this.....we are in the process of re-doing our wiring instructions.

The 100pf cap goes on the switch of the push pull pot.
The .047 cap is for the VTC.  Substitute the .1 cap if you have Sadowsky soapbars.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I would just back out the adjustment screws and put some machine oil, vaseline or some other light grease on them to prevent rust.
