Thread Name: low E on Gibson not playing proper pitch
Subject: RE: low E on Gibson not playing proper pitch
1. Is the string pinching in the nut slot?

2. Is the action too high?

3. Is the intonation correct?

4. Unlikely but I've seen it happen - Are the frets in the right place? The relationship between one and the next is the twefth root of two.

Before you slam any specific manufacturer. Any data or manufactured item could possibly contain an error. With reasonable error checking in place and error rate of one half of one percent would not be too unusual. It becomes very expensive to improve on this rate.
