Inside the Gibson Robot Guitar

I’m a “how’s that work” or “Let’s see the guts” type of guy when I see new gadgets.  This now includes the Gibson “Robot Guitar” and it’s self tuning mechanism.  I have heard about this new gadget and haven’t looked into it too much until news.com had an interesting pictorial with descriptions on “Taking apart the robot guitar.”   I’ve seen similar contraptions that can be installed on existing guitar but it’s nothing like the robot and requires some serious routing.   It was pretty cool to see how Gibson hid the electronics to keep the guitar looking authentic.   The machine heads are pretty bulky in the back and looks like you will need a bit of training on how to use it. Pretty cool but seems like a gadget that I can do without.
