I use an old Boss TU-somethingorother to keep me from getting too far away from accurate pitch, but I still do some ear-based tweaking after I tune to the machine.

Each guitar has its own little variations in intonation that demand individual attention.

I have excellent relative pitch sense, but I couldn't tune a string to a standard frequency to save my life unless I had a reference to relate it to.
