Hi all. I know the Gibraltar III bridge on my AGB140 is adjustable for string height, but is it adjustable (forward and back) for intonation?

It has little allen screws on each of the string supports, but they don't appear to adjust the individual supports forward or back.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks.

Yes--relieve tension from the strings while adjusting.
Just another Ibanez freak!

For those interested, yes, the Gilbraltar III is adjustable via four screws. My bass was giving me fits on intonation and I couldn't get it in no matter how I adjusted the bridge pieces. Fortunately, I found a diagram of the bridge and related photos, and discovered that whoever owned this bass last had the bridge on backwards. After reversing it, intonation adjusted right where it needed to be.
