Robot Guitar Made a Splash at CES!

Published: Tue January 15, 2008  News Feed

The Gibson Robot Guitar received “Best of Show” honors on Sunday, January 6 at the annual NEWSTIPS Cherry Picks event at CES. The Cherry Picks award has become known for targeting trend-setting technology and recognizing the most exciting and promising products each year.

The Gibson Robot Guitar was presented in front of worldwide media at the annual Cherry Picks event held in Las Vegas and competed against products from a hybrid vehicle to the latest in technology's best home and business products.

The Gibson Robot Guitar received an overwhelming vote for "Best of Show" and was recognized in a special award presentation. The Robot Guitar made history in December with its launch as the first guitar with robotic self-tuning technology. The guitar eliminates tuning problems for artists by automatically tuning to a standard A440 and allows players to access six commonly used altered tuning presets at the push of a button.

The technology also makes string changes an automated breeze and allows the guitar to be intonated in seconds after string changes, truss rod adjustments, or weather changes.

The Gibson Robot Guitar has been a huge worldwide hit, and at Dolphin Music they sould out within just a few days. If you were not one of the lucky ones who managed to get hold of the Limited Edition Robot Guitar, don't worry too much - Gibson will release a new, standard model before the end of the year.
