I'd buy one of these. The only thing is, can they repair the robotic parts if they break?

I`m sure they would fix the parts - it is Gibson afterall. But I wouldn`t buy first versions, I`d wait and see how they behave in real world conditions.

Oh that's so funny - I wanna see the little tuning heads tune themselves!! laugh.gif
But it is practical if you play in many different tunings as I do - saves you having a host of guitars all tuned differently.



Another company (line 6 I believe) has a guitar that can dial between tunings. However it is very expensive and the tuning change only occurs through the amp electronically, the actual tuning of the guitar stays the same.

Yes, some of the Variax line guitars from Line 6 do have alternate tuning effects built into the guitar. So like you said you'd have to hear it through the amp or headphones.

I'm sure Andrew could go into some good detail on this smile.gif

There's also the Roland VG99 system that lets you use different tunings - but without actually altering the guitar's tuning at all. (The VG does a lot of other things besides.) And there's a Fender Strat model that does the same as the Gibson here as well.

I read in a guitar magazine about this interesting guitar, but it's something that I just can't understand. It stood that it will never get out of tune AND that it's self tuned. What I don't get is why it is able to tune itself when it never gets out of tune? huh.gif

It doesn't go out of tune because it tunes itself...

Personally I think it's a gimic. I do appreciate the out of the box thinking by Gibson though. I'd buy one of these to collect, but for use; not so sure on that one. Real enthusists typically go for the older guitars anyways because those vintage models have the tone and feel that people generally want.

What I really think is interesting from Gibson is the digital Gibson. For someone like myself who likes traditional guitar based music & electronic music I think this is the wave of the future. It's way to much guitar for me at the moment, and the pricetag is way to high.

So in the end - buy a regular or vintage Les Paul because it's going to stay in tune anyways and use the rest of your money for GMC membership and strings! smile.gif
