Hi, new to the Suhr community but recently just bought a Suhr Modern with a Floyd and an older S4 with a Gotoh 510. Amazing guitars that instantly got me hooked! However, my S4 is giving me some fits. I don't know how to attach pics on this forum so please follow the link from my Rig-Talk post and see if you can help me.

Thanks!

That is super weird! That high E moved so insanely far back is a red flag. Does it have BFTS? Look at the back of the headstock, if it has the BFTS logo, you need to intonate it with a BFTS tuner

What happens when you intimate using 3rd fret and 15th ?
There could be debris in the nut slot.
Is your neck pickup really high ?

I looked at the picture and something is not right, how does it sound to your ear? Are you pressing very lightly ? what happens when you let someone else check it? Please use a good quality peterson or Turbo Tuner, I don't trust any built in tuners on rack devices for intonation. Please take it to your closest dealer to check out or we would be happy to check it all out here.
