I should add that on every string the 12th fretted note is quite a bit sharp of the harmonic and open notes, both of which are in tune on the tuner, so playing up the neck sounds a bit "off". I think I need to visit a guitar tech or buy a six saddle bridge.
I believe your saddles are too far forward. You need adjust them back to get more length between the 12th fret and the saddles. I really don't use the harmonics to set intonation. I use the open string to the 12th fretted note.
