Well, used some silicon on a cotton Q-tip and let it sit. saddles moved and intonation set. I still truly do not understand why washburn chose to reverse the bridge-as in screws facing neck and also DAE strings have the saddles reversed. Seems the sloped edge of saddles and the screws should be facing the tail piece. Will be when I get done. 60 views and 1 reply? Which I appreciate very much...But, OK-that certainly tells me something. same with post above mine about tailpiece-80 views and no replies.
Not much love for the Washburn Semis obviously...

Well, not an allen wrench...definitely has 4 points like a phillips. After looking with a magnifying glass I am beginning to believe this was just a really poor(as in unskilled) worker who attempted to adjust the intonation or whatever and totally screwed up. I am so bummed about this.

 :(    Intonation is terrible-so I figured no big deal, I'll just adjust the saddles. well the screws that move the individual saddles have a huge, almost round hole in them? no screwdriver I have comes close to fitting? am I missing something?
This is a new guitar ordered directly from Mississippi for me by a music store. Neck is fine-...No matter what else I could do I really cannot believe the screws.

I mean is it a special tool or something? pretty bummed-guitar is unplayable. of course I could just raise the tom on the bad side EAD are way, way out, but GBE are perfect.
I really do not want a guitar that I cannot adjust an individual saddle on.  any help appreciated. I like the guitar, the neck, etc-looks beautiful.
This never was in the store-it was delivered and I picked it up at the store 1 hour later.
