Intonation Issues (string guage?)

I have a couple of guitars that I have been fighting to get setup and I am wondering if you guys might have some advice. I have an Ibanez ART320 (It's scale length is 24 and 3/4). I am tuning in Drop-C and I have 11-54's on it. I can get all the strings intonated except for the 6th (low) C string. It's sharp @ the 12th fret but I am at the very end of the saddle so I can't go back any further. I also have a bass guitar that I am setting up that has the same problem. Am I trying to use to heavy of a guage? Too light? Neck relief looks good so I am a bit lost.

before you say "go get it professionally setup" I WILL. I just prefer to be ABLE to do these by myself and before going to drop-c I never had an issue. Even WITH the Floyd (which can be quite trying). haha..

Sorry if this is the wrong area of the site to post too..

Thanks in advance..

Can you rotate the saddle 180 degrees?
If so, try that.

Just looking at some pics of the bridge, you might not be able to reverse the saddles, but the whole bridge might be reversible.
