I recently bought a new bridge with roller saddles for my Epiphone Les Paul and I was setting up the intonation on it. This is the first time I'd done it but I assumed it would be simple enough.

For most strings it was but when I got to the high E, the saddle was as close to the pick-ups as it could go, yet the note on the 12th fret was still flatter than the harmonic.

What can I do to make the note the same as the harmonic now that the saddle can't move any further forward?

Thanks in advance

Re: Intonation

try going from the tailpiece to the pickup slowly maybe. seems like all the way forward is a little far looking at my gibson.
other than that i havent a clue if you have tryed all the way along the screw then go see someone that knows better than me

could also be that the rollers are wider than the original knife triangle stye ones(you know what i mean there i hope) if this is the case then cause they are wider then they wont allow you to get the position the same ?
