Subject: RE: low E on Gibson not playing proper pitch
It probably needs the intonation adjusted on the 6th string, at the saddle. A good luthier or guitar repair person can do that for you.
6th strings are often tricky that way on acoustic guitars. Sometimes the way you finger the chords is throwing the string sharp, because you're pressing it down too hard or too close to the fret. Capos often cause a 6th string to go sharp for the same reason...but I'd bet you still need an intonation adjustment anyway.
