So I have a ibanez RGD7UC with a tight end r bridge. When I try to set the intonation I don't really see the saddles moving like my other guitars. I follow all the steps in the manual. 1st I loosen the saddle lock bolt and then I tweak the intonation adjustment bolt.But the intonation doesn't change. The saddle doesn't move at all Any thoughts?

I would make sure the bolt is moving. If it is and the saddle doesn't move forward or backward, it sounds like it may be stripped out. Just to be sure. You should loosen (B) and then adjust (C) to change the saddle position for intonation. Then you should retighten (B) back down to lock it in place:

Thanks for the reply I appriciate it. The B part is loose but the saddles don't move . And this is the case for all 7 of them. It's a new guitar so is possible that they stripped out?

Are you using a philips head screw driver to adjust the bolt "C"?

Do you see that bolt "C" turning at all when you use the screwdriver?
