Well I finally drove into town and got a tuner. It's a Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner, $19.95. So instead of just tunin the 6 strings only, this model will tune any note from A to G and all points in between. So since I put smaller gauge strings on the V and it started sounding crappy I went ahead and did the whole setup. Well everything cept adjustin the neck cause it's right on as it is. Tuned up, set the string height per Gibson specs, then just a tad lower cause that's how I like it and don't have any fret buzz, then set the intonation. Plugged up and did some jammin. That's just what the doctor ordered, the V is soundin killer. The main problem was chordin a D in the 5th position and it just stank. The G & B string were both out, but sounded good everywhere else. Now it sounds GREAT in ALL chord positions. Let it set and checked the intonation again Saturday afternoon and today, did just a little more tweakin and I'm ready to go on stage and rock. I highly recommend this little jewel and you can't beat the price with a stick. So check it out here
That's a great little tuner for the price, I like that you can have sound pitch pipe tuning as well, so you can tune by ear, that's good for traning the ear, you cant go wrong for the price, excellent choice,
It is similar to the Tanglewood one that i have, the only difference is mine hasn't got the pitch pipe,
