Gibson self-tuning guitar

gibson logoGibson makes guitars and is probably not a company you would readily associate with consumer electronics, but these days everything seems to involve technology.

The company has been producing tunable guitars for some time, but this year it has refreshed the lineup. While these instruments can still be tuned by hand, they can also auto-tune and the mechanism that handles that has been shrunk down to be less intrusive. That is handled by a lithium-ion battery that is good for “80-100″ tunings. The guitars come with six factory pre-sets, but the musician can tweak that for themselves.

The guitars shown in the video start at $799 and are available right now.
