Hi,

My guitar seems to be tuned when plucked individually on OPEN. But when I play a note on the high e string on the 7th fret it is out of tune. Does this mean i need to restring(strings ARE pretty rusty) or is their a problem with the fretboard or something?

Thanks for the reply, I adjusted the low e string's intonation and is now properly tuned. But i'm having trouble with the high e string. No matter how much i adjust the screws, it still won't change?

*I still havent restrung the guitar. Is this most likely the problem?

you should have restrung the guitar before you adjusted the saddles

old rusty strings just cause intonation problems, so you'll probably find you're gonna have to adjust everything all over again when you put the new strings on.

Just buy yourself a new set of strings, restringing most guitars is a fairly easy task and there's nothing better than the sound of a new pair of strings
Those rusty strings are going to break sooner or later anyway.
METAL!

Restring your guitar, tune, then check the intonation and make any adjustments where necessary.
