Strat intonation?

What if when adjusting for a sharp intonation, the saddle screw is tightened all the way and the tone at the 12th fret is still sharp?

do not alter intonation on your guitar unless the strings are brand new, otherwise you will get a false reading. when intonation goes out replace your strings and it usually comes right if not check on a chromatic tuner and set intonation accordingly
