Brand new RG550 intonation issue

I just received my RG550, Desert Sun Yellow. I love it. But right out of the box, the A string was flat going up the neck and the 12th feet note was was well flat of the harmonic. I've moved the saddle toward the headstock as far as I can and it's still a bit flat. The screw is in the neck forward hole and the strings feel brand new. Anyone encounter this or have a fix?

Solved! Bad string from the factory. Great guitar.
