Thanks Zen & Shuffle, some great advice there. But no i have had the same string gauge and indeed make since i bought it and it had these on then too gauge 11 elixir. This set of strings has only been on about a week, new strings has made no difference at all to the problem i'm sorry to report. I tried perfectly tuning the low E and then gently playing first F and its very sharp. As i have been such close listening today i have also noticed that the A string is doing all this a little too, not as bad as the E but its there and both get slowly worse as they go up the neck. I made a few minor truss rod adjustments which slightly helped but not really. I noticed when i looked at the bridge saddle, they always have those peaks where the strings set some more forward or back than others, i have often wondered if they were put on as standard or a custom one for each guitar, as with mine the two lw strings E & A are set back from the D & G........i look at it and think if they weren't would it all be OK ? Or am i being naive and simplistic here.......bout time i had a stupid question. This is driving me mad this guitar was £3000.
