Gibson Robot Guitar - a Huge Hit!
It’s been less than a week since the release of Gibson’s self-tuning Robot Guitar, but already the Robot is one of the most successful product launches in guitar history.
The First Run Limited Edition Robot Guitar went on sale worldwide at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 7. Select dealers were allowed to sell 10 Robots each, and early figures showed that the Robot was selling at a rate of one per minute in some parts of the world. Many dealers reported selling out of the Robot Guitar faster than they can ever recall selling out of any other guitar. Dolphin Music is also selling those guitars quite fast and pretty soon we don't expect to have any left!
Following a wave of anticipation the likes of which the guitar world has never seen before, the first-ever guitar with robotic technology is a smash hit with musicians who want to eliminate the tedious tuning process. The Robot Guitar’s self-tuning technology automatically and quickly tunes the guitar, but this guitar offers much more: it also allows musicians to switch effortlessly between multiple tunings, and guides an intonation process that was—until now—lengthy and pricey.
The Robot Guitar, retaining the iconic form and craftsmanship of Gibson’s legendary Les Paul, has completely redefined what you can do with a guitar. Hurry up and grab yours before it's too late...
