Help open E

I have a rg 350 dx, Im having trouble with the low open E string.
When i play only the open E its out of tune then goes in to tune
when the string doesnt vibrate as much.

What could this be? the springs? im using a set of 10's dropped down
half a step.

I thinking about getting the custom set, when the e a d are thicker.

Re: Help open E

Is there any rattling around the nut? Also, is the nut clamp clamped down all the way? Do you notice any travel (movement) of the bridge when you ring the open note and it changes pitch?

Did you pre-stretch the strings?

No rattle, its a brand new guitar. The clamp is all the way down. Does the clamp have to be a certian way? and no movement of the bridge, its actually a stiff bridge.
I have to play that chord really lightly

Ok, that's all good, but did you stretch the strings?
