ok im going to be very descriptive and specific about my problem

i own an ESP/LTD M-200FM

i use d'adderio 12-54 strings
it is tuned low to high-A#-F-A#-D#-G-C

the floyd rose is completely parralelle to the body,the guitar is perfectly in tune
the action is normal and there is no fret buzz

but everytime i hit the 12 fret to check the inntonation it is way sharp

i moved the saddle further away and it barley made a difference

anyone who can help me please do, i cant afford to be off by that much


thanks

how old are the strings? strings can "die" after a time, if they're dirty try cleaning them or changing them. it's happened to me before, dirty strings do affect intonation.

Keep moving the saddle. Or is it as far as it goes?

the saddles are ALMOST at their threshold and the strngs are less than 2 weeks old

take it to a shop for a service. i think that its the sort of thing that you can only tell by seeing it and studying it in depth.

is the note on the 12th fret a bit sharp or flat?

nevermind i reread. hmmm let me think\

well if theres no fret buzz and the open notes are in tune would a truss rod adjustment still help the inntonation? now i cant tell if the neck is bowed or tight i can only tell by the action and string height (im trying to be as specific as possible so yous can help me)

well if there's no fret buzz and the open notes are in tune then it probably has something to do with your really low tuning. a similar thing happened to me
