Unhappy Intonating RGA121

I can't get a correct intonation on my RGA.

My ears are not searching perfect pitch (I intonated my RG 2550 properly with the first set up) but for some reason i don't get anything acceptable on the RGA.

I tried classic 12th fret harmonic technic without results. I also tried 24th fret technique recommended by Rich of Ibanezrules without success. The guitar still sounds out of tune.

I would add that after setting the intonation bridge saddles have a very unusual position. For exemple, A saddle is closer to the neck than D saddle.

Any advice welcome.
