This Gibson Les Paul Double Cut Pro Electric Guitar with PowerTune auto tuning system lets you see and hear the difference a century makes. Often imitated but never equaled, this is a premium Les Paul, crafted with 100 years of Gibson knowledge and craftsmanship for players who want the real thing. Simplified electronics consist of single tone and volume knobs. A three-way toggle controls the BurstBucker Pro pickups, which deliver phenomenally rich, singing sustain. AAA curly maple top on a weight-relived mahogany back with set mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard.
With the PowerTune System„¢, Gibson brings a real innovation to the marketplace that promises to banish, once and for all, the tuning problems guitarists and bass players often have. The system consists of 3 components that can automatically tune all strings according to prescribed settings in less than 5 seconds. Major modification of the instrument is no longer required. A control knob that enables the tuning to be programmed replaces the volume control. The player can choose from normal tuning patterns right up to the most diverse range of open tunings. The programmed instructions are implemented by tuners equipped with tiny electric motors. As the motorized tuners adjust the tuning, the pitch of the string is monitored by means of the tune-control bridge. Electrical power for the tuning mechanism is supplied via the guitar strings.
Gibson is proud to announce that it has reached an agreement with Tronical Gmbh of Hamburg, Germany for the exclusive worldwide sale and distribution of Tronical's revolutionary PowerTune System„¢. in both new guitars and upgrade kits.
With Tronical's PowerTune System, a guitar can tune itself precisely and automatically within seconds. It stores personal tuning preferences and makes them available for easy implementation at the push of a button.
