I have two Gibsons, and both have issues tuning the G and B strings. I had the nut worked on one and it didn't help much. Make sure you stretch the strings good , or you'll be tuning all the time. Of all my guitars Gibsons are the hardest to tune for me. Fender, ESP, PRS, no issue. Epiphone is just as bad as Gibson on string tuning.

My 2017 Tribute came with 9's. according to the numbers, the setup is right where it should be. I put 11's on it without touching the nut and all stay in tune except g and b. They tend to go about a half bubble sharp after playing for a bit. Nut sauce is coming today so I'm going to give that a try.

Have you tried using a folded 600 grit sandpaper? Polish the slot (also widens the sides). Move it back and forth until it keeps it's tune after a bend.

...good luck and have fun tweaking!
