For our Guitar playing friends, I was just watching GEAR, a show on HD channel Mojo.
The host introduces new gear in all walks of life. Tonight he showed two new Guitar technologies. One was an Epiphone Guitar/Amp combo that uses a separate amp for each of the six strings, and allows for different effects to put on each. Pretty cool sounds coming out of the guitar for sure. The second was the Gibson Robot, which has automatic, motorized tuning pegs. Pull out a knob, continue to strum and watch as the guitar tunes itself. A lot of technology and probably a threat to all of the purests but was very interesting to me. Now if we can get the tuning pegs on our drums we will be all set.
