As nowadays the market is overcrowded with all sorts of gimmicks, I heard about another one today: The Peavy AT 200 - a guitar fit with an Antares device that tunes it digitally. Cool, uncool? What do you guys think?

Hehe this might be useful in some ways (to easily play in drop tunings etc) but what worries me how this feels? Playing in drop tuning comes with a soft strings tension (usually). How does it feel playing strings that are completely out of tune, strings tension wise and feel bellow the fingers?

What would be useful is if this guitar would correct (automatically) small tuning/intonation issues along the frets.
Does it have that option? smile.gif

I really like how you can switch between different tunings, that was way cool. I would like that feature smile.gif
but I dont think I could play a guitar that was physically out of tune but just 'sounded' in tune. It would feel wrong, like Bogdan mentioned.

You say 'minor pentatonic ' like it's a bad thing

Bogdan, I have talked to the guys that represent Peavy and the thing is the tuning is digital out of what I understood - so basically you can play in Drop A on 09 0 42 strings without altering the tension actually, because the keys do not move smile.gif

biggrin.gif Sorry, I missread and I thought you didn't notice this - if you ask me, it kind of sucks, but I can't tell you until I get my hands on it. Will do next week!
