Intonation adjustment for the Carvin

Well, it's time to adjust the intonation on my Carvin DC135.

I changed the string gauge from 9s to a hybrid set, which are 9s on the treble side and 10s on the bass side. This has thrown off the intonation on pretty much the whole guitar except the high E string.

I am also noticing that the neck is always moving on me. I've adjusted the truss rod more times than I've changed the strings. ;) The neck is unfinished and tung oiled, so I think that has a lot to do with it. Living in the South-East United States is hell on most any guitar, but especially one with unfinished parts.

I am going to tackle the intonation job this afternoon, or tonight. I hate intonating Floyds, it sucks.

I am also having major problems with my EBMM Petrucci, but that is a whole other post...
