Howdy MTI, When intonating, you Increase the distance between the nut and bridge saddle to FLAT the pitch. Likewise you decrese the distance between the nut and saddle to SHARP the pitch. Or, you move the saddle the oposite direction that you want the needle on the tuner to go. I hope this is understandable. Peace. Picture a single coil pickup as a single wire "coiled" (wraped many times)around a pole piece. A magnetic bar or individual pole pieces can be used. This creates a single coil pickup. It also creates a great antenna for radio signals, 60cycle hum, whatever..... Now, a humbucker is two single coil pu's with magnetically opposite polarity. these are wired "out of phase" cancelling half the output of the pickup....the hum half. Its bucking the hum. I also hope this not-in-depth explanation clears things up for you a little. Peace, John
