If you want to get to the music sooner and delay the work a bit, if your bad tuners are on one neck, you might just string up the other neck in a 6th tuning and start learning there. As a new player ...

Intonation and tempo are critical to playing decent PSG, or most any other instrument.
Most any other?
A list of exceptions would be informative Smile
