Crazy neck problem

Fender Tele Custom with a new neck is giving me lots of trouble. I've intonated and tuned and check it all numerous times. The G is in tune and intonated but plays very sharp from the first to about the fifth fret. No clue what it could be. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm pretty sure I fixed it. The nut was a bit high, the action was a bit low, and the string itself had a real strange tone to it. So I fixed all three of those things and it's now sounding acceptable.
