Thread Name: low E on Gibson not playing proper pitch
Subject: RE: low E on Gibson not playing proper pitch
Compromise. Don't tune the guitar so the E note is in tune. Tune it so that the G note at the third fret is in tune. If that leaves the open E noticeably off, "split the difference" so that one note is a tad sharp and the other a tad flat. If it still sounds like crap, take it to a luthier and have him install a compensated saddle.
