I was wondering why the tone of my new Hofner didn’t sound right, and I just discovered something weird…
All the open strings are tuned perfectly (according to my Polytune 3). But when I fret any note on any of the strings they are reading extremely sharp. Not just a little sharp… needle off the chart sharp.
Why is this? Does anyone know? String height, intonation? What is the issue here?
I’ve never had this with any of my previous basses.
