    If I'm getting open strings in tune with their twelfth fret, but lower frets (1-11) are sharp and those above 12 are flat... Assuming fret placement isn't an issue, am I dealing with low, worn-down frets?

    Is this a homemade guitar or factory-built?

    Fret height should not make a difference - how did you check the tuning? Do you have a strobe tuner?
