It's the wound E, not the high E.
One popular alternative is to adjust each string so that it is in tune at two points an octave apart from each other on the fret board using a strobe tuner.
Using the 5th and 17th fret as an example: Tune a string at the 5th fret
Check the string at the 17th. If sharp, move the saddle back, thus lengthening the string (turn the saddle screw clockwise). If flat, shorten the string by moving the saddle forward (turn the saddle screw counter-clockwise).
Always re-tune the open string after adjusting the saddle position before re-checking the result. Remember to fret the string using the pressure that you would normally apply while playing. Keep repeating this process until each string is in tune as much as possible at both the 5th and 17th frets.
This method takes time, and has to be repeated if you change string gauges, but if properly executed, yields very satisfactory results.
Now, before you play music with a lot of 5ths on your guitar (e.g. power chords), tune the guitar using the GTR, P5 or G5 setting , depending on which model of strobe tuner you own, otherwise use the EQU (default) setting to tune your guitar.
