I'm still confused though, I assumed all 10 strings would be roughly the same, and using one from a different set wouldn't make that much difference.

Ah well :)

I'll restring it with a set of 10s I've got lying around anyway, seems like the best way to see what's going on.

I *might* go up to 11s someday, but I fear the 12s :)

That's the only real way to know for sure if it's a problem with the guitar.

How old are the other strings?


They're all a bit old now... The high E is now 2 months old, and the rest of the set about 4 months.

I guess I should replace the whole set, but I noticed that when I got the guitar, the movable bit of the saddle was already as far as it can go - which makes me wonder whether it's more to do with the guitar than strings.

Wish I knew more about this sorta stuff, could do with a cheap guitar to practice on!

I'm no guitar tech either, but some of the other guys here will know the answer to your problem, I'm sure.

I replaced it with another string from a different set than I usually use (but with the same gauge, 10), but I've been unable to get proper intonation on that one string in standard tuning.

The fretted note on the high E string is flat, but the movable part of the saddle is at its limit - I can't make the string go any sharper!

I'm not great on guitar setup - any idea what I can do to fix this? Could it mean the neck needs adjusting? Action raising/lowering? Could it be because I used a string from a different set (even if the gauge is the same)? Could leaving my guitar in open tunings have affected anything?
