Gibson Robot Guitar

Famous instrument maker Gibson has announced the impending release of the Robot Guitar, claimed to be the world's first guitar with built-in robotics. Servos located on the headstock tune the strings as desired; while the guitar defaults to A440 tuning, six other presets are included based on hit songs; to switch to one, musicians simply hit a button. The servos handle the rest. The guitar can also be tuned manually through a knob on the body, which pushes in and out and can also twist to change volume.

Availability of the Robot Guitar will be initially be very restricted: for the December 7th launch, only 400 stores will carry it worldwide, and each store will be limited to 10 instruments. The only version will likewise be a limited-edition "Blue Silverburst" Les Paul guitar, which is likely to raise prices. No official prices have been mentioned.
