The perfect guitar?
Gibson Guitars reports: [edited]
It took Chris Adams 10 years to perfect the auto-tuning system on the Gibson Robot Guitar. While he was at it, Adams developed the technology that allows it to switch effortlessly between multiple tunings, keep a guitar perfectly intonated, and even [allegedly, Ed.] change strings.
Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins loves it. Matt Bellamy from Muse puts it in his guitars. Steve Vai is telling everybody how great it is.
The only thing you have to do to start is pull a knob, strum the strings, and when everything on the display is blue, you are done.
In select stores December 7, 2007 as a first run limited edition, only 10 per store. £1,400.
