The tuner says my Low e is in tune but shows it as a g#

I've always noticed how my low e on my Dean wouldn't be in tune by ear. So I brought an electronic tuner and it showed it was in tune but as a G#...

Then you need to tune it to E

what gauge strings do you have? maybe you have to tune up to the E? You likely haven't tuned above the E to a G# as you'd notice how tight the string is. Also try another tuner to make sure.

Check the tuning against the A string (which I assume is in tune).

It's either the frequency, the string gauge or you.

Only two of those can be fixed.

Probably down an octave.

Maybe the tuner isn't calibrated.

What kind of tuner is it? My clip-on tuner thinks my lowest string is a B when I tune it to E (I guess it only picks up the 3rd harmonic)
