Subject: RE: Help: Feiten system, anyone?
Michael, when you tune your guitar, do you tune it according to Buzz Feiten's recommendations ? I know that to get the full bebefit of the system you have to tune slightly off the theoretical pitch, and that you have to have an electronic tuner with a needle and cent markings to do this.

But I still don't understand why your guitar plays sharp unless
A. Your action is too high, or
B the capo is exerting too much clamping pressure on the strings. I cannot believe that the problem is caused by the installation of the Feiten system.

Good luck with getting RT to participate here, but don't hold your breath !
