Gibson Pro Digital Guitar

Guitar maker Gibson on Monday released the HD.6X-Pro digital guitar, an instrument the company calls a revolutionary first for professional musicians. The new guitar's unique Hex pickup immediately converts the motion of the strings into a pre-amped, digital signal that the company says can produce studio-grade output regardless of the intended destination. Though a standard 1/4" output is included for conventional amplifiers, the HD.6X-Pro can also link to other devices through Gibson's Ethernet-based MaGIC system: this not only ensures a direct connection to computers but also greatly simplifies the wiring process. Attached to an included breakout box, a single Ethernet cable can carry all the needed input and output signals for miles without a loss in quality, according to Gibson. The guitar is available today through Sweetwater for $4,000; a limited run of 100 guitars signed by Les Paul is also shipping for $8,000 each.
