Re: Phiew.... guitar intonation - hard work!
With the thicker
strings it seems the stings need to be just a little bit longer. Five
strings are good now, but for the G string (or D as this instrument is
tuned) the mounting of the stratocaster style bridge/tailpiece/whammy
does not allow the sting length needed for correct intonation.
Try installing an Earvana style nut instead. That should help with getting the g-string intonation right. An Earvana nut generally smooths out (shortens) the bridge intonation lengths a bit a give much sweeter chords all up the neck. Worth doing on any guitar IMO.
