Well as stated all my other strings are in tune open and fretted as well as my intonation is on at the 12 feet on all strings. I can’t seem to figure out why it’s on my G string. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Cheers and stay safe!
Try taking off your G-Sting and playing naked.
Is it still sharp??
The 3rd string is always a bit off…
There are a number of "compensated" bridges available to correct that problem.
If you really wanna go to town...
Yes, the G string is very often a tad sharp on banjos. Compensated bridge is a cheap easy try/fix. My old banjo required one. My "new one" (same pot) with a diffrent tailpiece and a new neck is fine with a straight bridge.
A compensated bridge might or might not be necessary, but the first thing I would do is to change the string.
The next thing would be to move the bridge back 1 mm. and see if the instrument will temper out better. Mark your current bridge location before you move it.
If that doesn't take care of it, have a good repairman check for an inaccurately slotted nut and/or deeply grooved frets.
A good compensated bridge improves the intonation on all banjos.
