Ok, so what exactly is the problem? I take it you adjusted the bridge saddles already, so can you get good intonation at the twelfth fret? I would imagine then that the intonation everywhere else is crap? It might work to file down the nut, so that the action at the nut is lower, also, lowering the action can help but you of course have to worry about fret buzz. Umm, I would also seriously considering getting a new pack of stringfs and making sure they are well stretched in, as old or badly stretched strings can create intonation problems. I'm not sure how much of this you have tried, or even if you have the problems I think you might (I had some similar problems with my squier which are better now). I got a lot of help from a guy at http://www.allexperts.com so you might like to talk to someone there. Hope this helps.
