hi guys..i'm trying to fix my guitars intonation for the 1st time.. i don't know much about fixing it..just have the basic idea. now i have this problem- i tune my open string into E. so now i'm supposed to get a E in the 12th fret also. so i adjust the screw so that i get a E in the 12th fret too. bt when i get it, the open string E changes. isn't the open and 12th fret supposed to be the same note(one octave higher) when the intonation is perfect? i hope u get what i say. i have a ibanez gio grx 40 with a non locking 6 screw bridge

To adjust intonation, Tune the open unfretted string to pitch (E for example)

Then using an electronic tuner,

Compare the 12th HARMONIC to the 12th Fretted.

If the Fretted note is SHARP of the Harmonic Note, then lengthen the string with the bridge saddles
If the Fretted note is FLAT of the Harmonic Note, then shorten the string with the bridge saddles.

Hope that helps..

it's a lot harder to do if your strings aren't new
