    PRS CE22 tremolo. Trouble intonating Low E string

    I've got a rather nice 1999 CE22 and I've had it for a little while now. I love it. However I noticed the intonation has slipped recently. All the other strings are perfectly intonated but I can't get the Low E saddle to move back far enough to get the Low E in tune. What do you guys do?

    Try sa new set of stings. Every once in a while, you get a bad set, that simply wont intonate properly...

    Agreed. $6 solution - new strings.

    Yup...strings...I purchased a few sets of bass strings from an on line company and all 6 sets had bad (dead, won't intonate) A strings. They sent replacements, but it does happen. (Or they're old strings on it now????)
