Guitar is a Washburn WR-150, 6-string, 25.5 inch (648 mm) scale, non-locking tremolo bridge, usually strung with .09-.48 D'Addario strings.

The intonation is perfect at the 12th fret on all strings; however, it goes sharp as I move up and down the fretboard. No amount of fiddling with the bridge saddles seems to change anything (including the 12th fret intonation). The action is a bit higher at the net than it is on the rest of the fret board, could this be related? I was thinking about filing the nut down a bit (it needs it anyway), will this affect the intonation?

Any help will be appreciated.

fileing down the nut will effect it slightly. you should no guitar with normal stright fret will ever be intonated at every fret. there are places that make custom neck and fretboards for guitars were it is but they are not cheap.

By "normal straight fret" are you referring to the fret wires or to the fretboard? There is a truss rod in the neck, so the neck and fretboard are not perfectly straight and the curvature can be adjusted.

I don't think it's a Buzz Feiten. That's a brand name, right? Not just a generic name for that style of bridge?

You can never perfectly tune a guitar, what you describe is normal.
Ofcourse the higher your action the more the notes will go sharp when you fret them.
