    I just got of these, it's great bass. However, I changed the strings to D'ADARIOS 45-105, seem to be the same gauge that was on there,but now the intonation is a bit out. The bass is in tune but could be me but seems a tad off. Any thoughts?

    Intonate it. Different strings often require intonation adjustments.

    Yep, intonation must be checked/tweaked with each string change.

    I got it intonated but the A string saddle is really pushed forward compared to the other saddles.

    Does not sound normal.

    Set witness points (press down on the string where it departs the bridge saddle and the nut). These help ensure the stretch is out of the string.

    All the best, Bob.

    Also, I wouldn't stress about where the A saddle is positioned. It could just be the string, or a slight difference in string action at the bridge, height difference at the nut slot, or amount of bow of the neck.
