Question Strange saddle position after intonation adjustment

I've finished the intonation adjustment of my JPM100, following the instructions on Ibanez Rules. But look at the D string saddle, far back... I've never seen anything like that on any intonated guitar. I double checked, that's the correct position for all saddles.

Is this a normal thing? Or it's a sign that something is wrong?

Re: Strange saddle position after intonation adjustment

If the intonation is good, then no need to worry. So, is the D string intonated properly? If so, then congrats! You can now play and not worry about your saddle placement.

I've had similar things happen with various strings on various guitars. Sometimes it's not the usual double slant you'd be used to seeing. As long as it pitches well, then all is good.

Re: Strange saddle position after intonation adjustment

Did you intonate up to the 22th+ frets?
Also, is anything in your nut somehow peculiar or uncommon?
I agree the setup is uncommon.

Yep, it does intonate up to the 22+ frets, nut is normal. I'm playing it normally, I'm just used to see that double slant... then I got a bit afraid.

Re: Strange saddle position after intonation adjustment

That's common with very worn off frets, especially on the D string.
