I got a chance to talk to Henry Juszkiewicz, CEO of Gibson Guitars who is hosting a very cool concert setup at CES with some great musicians like Kevin Costner (uh, yeah - that Kevin Costner) and Peter Frampton. Gibson was showing off their new Robot Guitar, which has auto-winding tuning pegs. You can push a button and go from a standard tuning to a drop D, or any other tuning in a few seconds. This means no locking nut on the headstock, but since it keeps itself in tune - who cares?

Gibson may be one of the oldest names in electric guitars, but they are also an innovator. They were the first to stick a 100Mb ethernet port on an electric. Rock on, Gibson!

    That looks very cool - I want one.

    Glad you didn't let the CEO launch into a pitch for his TV show.  Good job cracking that whip, Laura. Smiley

    Would have liked to know the price, and maybe an explanation of what different tuning presets sound like - I thought there was only one way to tune a guitar.

    I really want to get one as well. I'd be curious to see how much it weighs. One thing I hate is changing strings and tuning my guitar. As for price right now they're around $2600. Check their site they have some nice videos demoing the guitar.
