At present, I have the saddle of the G string all the way away from the neck, as far as it will go, and I'm still getting the G just a hair sharp at the 12 fret. It's not such a big deal because it's a tiny amount, but the exact same thing just happened with my B string. Why do I always end up having them pushed all the way to the end of their groove?

I'm not sure either, but doesn't neck relief also affect the intonation to some degree?
Anyway, unless your guitar is some sort of partscaster with a funky scale lenght, and there's nothing wrong with the action...I'm out of ideas:s

What tuner do you have? Are you intonating to the attack, or the sustained pitch?

restring / breakem' in, don't over strech / inntonate again, and get back to us, also has the instrument intonated properly in the past ie; w/ out the anomally your currently experiencing, and as stated earlier all there of do factor in, most natably after the fact, ie; changing string hieght, adjusting the truss rod, and yes adjusting the pickups too, all the best...

nut slot depth can also have an effect.
