Gibson Robotic Guitar
On December 7, 2007, Gibson proudly presented the Gibson Robot Guitar ? the world’s first guitar with robotic technology.
Gibson states that “Since the dawn of the instrument, musicians have come to accept the guitar’s imperfections and lack of tonal precision as necessary evils.
“Onstage and off, guitarists have fought to stay in tune. Every music lover and performer has had to suffer through the show?halting, mood-killing atonal droning of a loudly amped guitar being brought into tune.
“And in the studio, or at home, imprecise intonation throws the guitar in and out of tune, up and down the neck, as the instrument requires tweaking with each season and at times with each string change.”
I have tried to think of what I think may be wrong with this invention but I find it hard to criticise this innovation as it has a lot of positive points. It also allows for D-tuning a guitar etc, this is just great!
I am currently recording some stuff with my guitars and it is just annoying when you record and whilst recording you realise that the guitar is SLIGHTLY out of tune!!!! so you have to stop the recording to tune the guitar!! In some cases, the guitar track that was recorded that was slightly out of tune was a the perfect take for the track but due to the fact it is out of tune, you just have to delete that track! This innovation solves that! For a price or about £1300 for this technology and a genuine Gibson Les Paul guitar, then that is (in my perception) great value for money… Only downside is, I do not have the money
