I am having a serious issue with my guitar and looking for some help. I recently had the guitar set up in a shop and in order to get the intonation right the guitar tech had to adjust some of the string saddle screws on the bridge as far as they'd go (towards the neck) but now my intonation is out of whack again, as much as somewhere between 1/8th and 1/4 step on the B string but as the screws are as far as they'll go I'm not sure how I can fix this.
Is it possible that there is a problem with my guitar? such as warping of the neck or similar. my guitar has a fixed no-tremolo bridge:
So this cannot be a tremolo related issue obviously.
Can anyone offer any insight as to why this might be happening?
Would adjusting the action slightly or opting for a heavier string gauge change the amount the screws need to be adjusted in one direction or the other so that i might be able get some room to play with?
Alternatively do different bridges come with longer or shorter throw on the bridge saddles?
That being said, i have had the guitar for years so the current bridge should work fine.. in theory.
Someone please help provide some insight! The intonation issue is noticeable and renders the higher frets unplayable.
