    There's no adjustment on a resonator bridge, is there? Pretty much the same for the majority of flat top acoustics as well.

    With a spider bridge it may be the cone/spider assembly isn't parallel to the nut. You may need to turn it slightly. That's about the only adjustment you can make.
    There are replacement saddles that have some compensation for the G string.
    The only other option is to get a compensated nut made for the guitar but that's only going to help with open strings.
