Low B Saddle On Lo Pro Edge-7, Intonation

I've got this RG 7620 and I can't get the Low B saddle far enough back for proper intonation. I have not experienced this on my Universe. I use a .054 for the low B, but I switched to a .052 on the 7620 because thinner strings don't seem to need to be as far back. But it didn't solve it. Anyone else experience this? I somewhat fixed it by tuning the fretted D on the low B, 3rd fret, rather than tuning the low B (when I tune the guitar I mean) because fretted notes were going too sharp if I tuned the low B.

I have almost experienced this

Hi man, yeah the low B needs to be heaps far back

Mine is so far back, when I change strings, I find it hard to unscrew the allan bolt holding in the string, and vice versa (becaue the fine tuner gets in the way of my allan key)

Although, my saddle is far enough back to make the intonation right.

I didn't have a problem with 56 - 60's

Did you know there are 2 holes in which you can use for the allan bolt locking the saddle in place. I used to 2nd hole in oder to get the extra length in my B string.

I've since sold that guitar. Couldn't deal with that & other problems with it.
