Having trouble with setting the intonation.

I have adjusted my neck on my Private Stock so that relief is below 0.010, and set the trem such that pulling back on the trem all the way takes the pitch from E to F#. No more, no less. But, I keep bottoming out on the intonation on the G string and am still sharp, and I have problems with a piezo saddle on the low E cutting out because I have to pull the saddles too far back to get in. Is there some game that I can play with the trem to get some more leeway in the saddles or is this possibly a structural deficiency?

BTW, the piezo system is a factory installed Graphtech Ghost system. I know that I probably have to replace the saddle at some time. I have the parts, but I just haven't gotten around to it.
