Yeah, so I slapped a set of new strings (13-59, wound G) on my Ibanez RG321MH in hopes of keeping it in drop C for some fun.

Well, the lowest string (the C) goes slowly more and more sharp as you ascend the frets. The 12th is just straight up ugly sounding. Doesn't match the C at all.

I've tried adjusting the neck both ways, and moving the saddle to and fro. I am unsure wtf is going on, and I'm kind of panic'ing.

Any help super appreciated!

thick strings generally dont want to intonate easily, try going to a set or maybe trying some string with a thicker core wire

Well it did probably just need to be intonated but if you have been ****ing with everything it probably needs a full setup now.

Move the saddle back away from the neck.

Do you think the 59 could be too thick for the guitar?
