Gibson Robot GuitarGibson Guitar announced the limited availability of the world’s first guitar with robotic technology, the Gibson Robot Guitar. It will available in¬†selected stores December 7, 2007
First Run Limited Edition, only 10 per store.

Gibson claims it’s the first robotic technology guitar. With tagline¬†“All you have to do is play it.”, you won’t need do dirty job again. With a revolutionary mix of on-board processing, a data transmitting tailpiece, tune-control bridge, and Powerhead Locking Tuners, the guitar automatically stays in tune, and can move to an alternate tuning with the turn of a switch. So really, all you have to do is play.

This robot guitar features:

  1. The Gibson Robot Guitar eliminates tuning problems for guitarists. It automatically tunes to standard A440 tuning.
  2. It also allows players to access six commonly used altered tuning presets at the push of a button. These tunings were used on many well-known hit songs, giving players easy access for the very first time.
  3. The Gibson Robot Guitar allows the guitar to be intonated in seconds after string changes, truss rod adjustments or change in weather conditions.
  4. Finally, with the locking tuner, single string changes or changing the entire set of strings are an automated breeze.

  1. Very interesting guitar. How much is this? I’ll buy it.

  2. I purchased a robot guitar and the B-string tuner was DOA. I sent it back to Gibson 2 weeks ago and have not heard a word from them, even after phone calls and e-mail messages. I don’t know if or when I will get it back. I don’t know if anyone else has had this problem.

  3. It’s an interesting guitar, however I think that technology like this is going to make musicians lazy. 10 years from now kids learning guitar won’t even be able to tune a guitar with regular tuners, non-the-less it is pretty neat.
