Hi Evonel, welcome to the forum and the string section. :D

The obvious answer is: tune your guitar up from baritone to standard tuning. :?
(the two strings you mention are in the baritone drop6 zone.)

I hope you can be a bit more specific about the problem with your guitar.
How does it intonate ?

Since the guitar is brand new, any problem should be solved by the dealer free of charge.

Best Regards

Hi Evonel and welcome to the forums :)

The FG800 is a great guitar and I really like the one I had on test.

As Peter said it seems your guitar just needs tuning. It sounds like someone was had already been playing it in an alternate tuning, either in the store or perhaps someone had bought it and returned it. Either way it is an easy fix. (Y)
