    Get the guitar set up properly, use thicker guage strings, make sure the string is definitely locked in the tuner and isn't loose.

        Sounds like your g-string is probably sticking in the nut. Try a little nut sauce on the nut's g-string slot. If you don't have nut sauce, a no. 2 pencil works fine.

              Yeah this is absolutely 100% the nut. In fact, if you have a Gibson with a tuning stability issue, 99% of the time it's the nut. You can lubricate it, but you should also widen the slot just a little tiny bit with some folded sandpaper or a finishing file. Or just have the nut replaced entirely, which is what I usually end up doing to my Gibsons. I like a graphtech nut, personally.

                  It's the nut, as others have said. Chapstick works well, and is cheaper than Nut Sauce.

                      On Gibsons the G string takes a sharper bend at the nut than the other strings, which is why it is the one that most often causes problems. Don't know why the D string doesn't cause the same problems.

                            Yeah, that sounds like it's catching something at the nut. Have a good look at it, see if it needs cleaning up or widening a little. It doesn't take much wrong with a nut to give horrible results, but it'll probably also be an easy fix. Even if the nut's cut perfectly, doesn't hurt to put some lubrication in there.

                              Still worth the trip, I'd assume.

                              I'd like to know why Gibson hasn't offered a line of Les Pauls (or any 3&3 headstock guitar) with a redesigned headstock so that the tuners are in-line with the string path.
