Some intonation questions

Post by WingsGuitarAndBass » March 24th, 2018, 9:18 pm

Hi!

So, I've been playing for a while (eight years) and I realized I shifted countries (lol). Big story short I can't afford a real technician anymore so I'm on my own.

So, my intonation is off and after watching some videos, I did start to get some results.
But I've got questions,

1. Is it necessary for my intonation to be spot on? I realize a trained ear can pick up the difference but I don't think I can achieve perfect intonation with how I'm going. It's taking a lot of screwing

2. I'm running out of screw space on bass and spring on my extended range 9 string (don't ask me why I got a 9) guitar, what do I do? Is there a way to reset it somehow?

3. I was thinking of getting longer screws, would that help? Don't want to experiment until I'm sure someone has done this before.

Additional Information : My bass has the same bridge as this http://www.ibanez.com/products/u_eb_det ... color=CL01

My guitar : http://www.schecterguitars.com/guitars/ ... c-9-detail

I'm genuinely lost and I need my instrument to be at their best, any help in any direction would be amazing,

Thanks in advance!
