The headstock angle doesn't affect tuning if anything it helps improve the break angle across the nut hence why Fender and other non angled headstocks have to have string trees.

I'd bet money a decent set up will solve all your tuning stability problems. As Gary said it's most likely the nut that's the issue. Getting properly cut nuts for my guitars has been the best thing I've done with any of them.
I have had the D/G string tuning issue on every single les Paul I played and on an SG style guitar I used to own.
Maybe they were shitty nuts.

I thought the tuning issues with Gibson style 3X3 guitars was more to do with the angle the D & G (mainly the G) strings leave the nut? The previously mentioned string butler is supposed to work well for this.

then I watched this and it made sense
