What about a clip-on headstock tuner?
So I slapped some heavier (11-49) strings on, raised the action (I like it a little high) with a small turn of truss rod and raised the bridge a hair, re-intonated.
Dead spot obviously still there but seems less noticeable. Gonna try to forget it now.
Guitar feels a lot better to me with the 11s though, like it's ready to be dug into.
Yeah, I'm not putting that thing on my headstock. Not even if it transferred the soul of Duane Allman into my fingertips. Just no.I tried the Fat finger. It didn’t make a noticeable difference. Plus it looked weird to me having a head stock tuner and a head stock weight on my guitar.
So I finally got my Santana Retro for my Birthday. It's been in a case under the bed since we bought it. And of course, dead note on the B 12th fret. Also happens on the G string at 16th fret, same note. Or if I bend the 10th fret B or 14th fret G. I'm so disappointed. I had a Cu24 like this that I had to return. But this has been sitting waiting in its case for the best part of a year and now the most played area of the neck is a disaster. Gutted.
