So, I'll admit I was a bit drunk, and was going to play guitar, when the E string got caught on a lampshade.
As a result, the e string(Noted this is a FR double locking) came out of tune.
And the intonation is MILES off, so, can I fix that while the strings are on? I mean, I can move the string out of the way enough to get an alan key in.


Tl;Dr Can I adjust my Intonation while my strings are still strung tight?
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

It's probably possible but will be extremely difficult and not advised.

Well yes, you can adjust the intonation while the strings are still tight. Just slacken the tension on the string you're trying to adjust. Should save you a lot of time.
Although while you're at it you may as well check the intonation on all the strings.

Thanks guys.
Intonation is just about right.
However...
I'm bumping this as I still have a problem.
When I play the open e, it sounds about fine.
however when I fret it, it sorta rings poorly, it rings and doesn't buzz out.
but it sorta vibrates, like very rapid vibrato...
The action ain't really low, my floyd is barely even level, it pokes up a couple of degrees.
