In the mid nineties, my Dad walked with me to Gig sound and I bought my first guitar a £49 Brunswick acoustic for my birthday. For years I played it until I realised how rubbish it was! I replaced the tuners, had a bone nut installed, had the neck levelled, Ablone fret markers put in (To replace the shockingly bad plastic ones that were proud of the neck, refretted it, had a bone saddle installed and replaced the bridge pins for tusq. I have a lowden and a d28 but everyday I play this guitar, I've probably spent over 8 times what the guitars worth doing it up. I know it will always be a cheapo ply thingy but it sounds pretty alright. My dads not around any more and it means even more to me now. It's the one thing I'd run into the house to save if it was on fire.
The intonation is shocking, open/harmonic it is so sharp and its like that all over the neck, no 2 same notes intonate the same. Suggestions guys? I'd be happy to go down the whole new bridge route.
