so the other day i decided to tune my guitar to C standard to play along to a couple of songs. I only had it like that for about a half hour and then I put it back to E standard.

Now my intonation is way off. When I tune my high E string to perfect pitch, the open note (E) is fine, but the 5th fret is way flat (by about 17 cents) and it gets worse as it approaches the 12th fret. I thought that maybe I should adjust the saddles at the bridge, but the saddle for the high E is all the way forward and can't be adjusted any further.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this? Will getting new strings solve my problem?

Did you mess with your action at all? Depending on your guitar you'll have to adjustyour tail piece or action. Can be a few different things.

no i didn't mess with the action at all. I just tuned it and tuned it right back.

well, old strings might've been the problem. i suggest getting new strings, resetting the saddles to a neutral position, string it, then set it up.
