I have a very odd problem happening. As the subject states, i have an Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ a Tune-o-matic saddle bridge. I put new strings on it and began to intonate as usual. But not as usual, some of the saddles do not seem to be doing their jobs? Here is the totaly messed up part. I can turn the saddle as far one side or the other of bridge and the intonation stays EXACTLY the same pitch Any change, if any, is minute enough to not register.
This almost defies the laws of sound science? It has to to make some sort of pitch change? Right?
-using all new strings.
-tried four different tuners.
-have tried it in playing position and laying flat.
-Have tried loosening the strings all the way off prior to adjustments and have also tried it with just a hint of pressure on the saddle to keep it from jumping around?
Anyone care to enlighten as to what i could possibly be over looking here. It is kind of aggravating to experience this. There is something i am not seeing?
In the off chance i have to replace it any recommendations for a replacement?
