    I've experienced that same thing several times, EDW, where just one string (usually a brand new one, right after installing a new set) is annoyingly sharp (or, in some instances, flat!) at the 12th fret, whereas all of the other strings are perfectly accurate. This is always a head-scratcher when the saddle is just the regular straight-across bar style (rather than being of the compensated variety); it would seem that, with the regular bar-style saddle, ALL of the strings would be either "in" or "out", as a group.

    Remember that there is always the bonfire possibility. For an uke that is not intonated properly on bridge ... it can be corrected. Think about costs and sentimental values you may have for it.
