My nephew just sent me this link on Gibson's new automatic tuning system. I's pretty neat although I doubt I'd evedr pay the extra $$ for it.

I think there ought to be a GH law that you have to know how to keep your own guitar in tune.

Looks like a whole lot of excess technology to me.

I bought one of these a while back for my daughter when she was learning to play. It's not perfect but actually works reasonably well:

I thought it was a joke... but it's a gimmick.

I can't play very well, but at least I can tune a guitar.

Hmmm. .. Let me see if I get the string changing procedure right: Pull master control head in hold hands away from guitar while flashing green light and push knob in lightly three times, then rotate knob again hold breath while pressing button and turning screw until blue light turns red. Then rotate counterclockwise and pull out knob, rotating it until the letter "i" flashes blue. Wait 3 seconds, and then wait until rotating knob turns green. If it is green than turn knob again and tap three times until it flashes blue. Wait three seconds and tap your tummy while holding your leg over your head. Wait until LED turns pink with flashing yellow polka dots. If nothing happens repeat the process. Isn't technology wonderful?
