Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum but I posted a question about this on the Strat page of TDPRI a few months ago. Basically, my MIM standard's intonation is terrible. The high E and B strings are audibly sharp when fretted at the 12th fret. The G is flat ath the 12th. Generally I know how to set intonation, but the saddles are at the very end of their travel. The E and B are right on the very end of the adjustment screw, and still sound flat, meanwhile the G string saddle needs to move back a bit, but the spring is now fully compressed, and the saddle won't budge. My dad mentioned a while ago that you could "reset" the intonation by, slackening the strings and moving the saddle to give enough play for adjustment. But to me this seems a bit counter intuitive, as for example if i move the saddle back a bit on the E string to give enough room to sharpen the note at the 12th fret, won't that just flatten the note futher??? I have the guitar setup like Clapton's, with five springs in the back, and the bridge flush to the body. I use regular strings (10-46). Any help is very much welcome.
