Missed out on the Robot Guitar when it was in our stores? Now's your chance: The First-Run Limited-Edition Gibson Robot Guitar - the world's first guitar with robotic technology - is available here at It's no longer in the Guitar Center stores, but it is for sale online only
in very limited quantities. Order now to get what will almost certainly become a highly-collectible instrument .

The self-tuning system is built into a gorgeous Gibson Les Paul guitar without changing its looks and while retaining all the sound and playability that have made the LP one of the most successful electric guitars of all time. To tune itself, the Robot Guitar uses an on-board central processing unit (CPU) that analyzes the pitch of each string as detected by a Tune-Control bridge. Tuning information from the CPU is relayed to the motorized tuning machines that efficiently adjust each string to the correct pitch with a distinctive whirring sound that lets you know Robot Guitar is on the job.

You activate the Robot Guitar with the Master Control Knob (MCK) that functions as a tone control in the down position and is pulled up to activate the tuning system. In addition to standard (A-440Hz) tuning, six commonly used tunings are selectable from the MCK. Users can also program their own custom tunings as well as set the guitar's intonation. Now, with the Gibson Robot Guitar, you'll spend more time playing--in tune. In live performance you can easily change tunings practically soundlessly on the fly keeping your show flowing smoothly. There's no longer any need to haul several instruments to the gig to cover various tunings; The Robot does it all for you!

Each limited edition, first-run Gibson Robot Guitar features a dramatic Blue Silverburst nitrocellulose finish, created especially for this limited run. It will never be used on any other Gibson guitar. Also featured is a certificate of authenticity, a power adapter for the system's rechargeable lithium battery, and a limited edition First-Run case with a silver Tolex exterior and a matching plush silver interior.

Each Robot Guitar's serial number will also be sequentially exact, beginning with "RG0001," and continuing through the end of this strictly limited run. This Robot Limited Edition First Run Electric Guitar is bound to become a highly collectible instrument. Get yours now before our allotment is sold out!

This collectible is a Player, too.

Comments about Gibson Robot Electric Guitar:

Gibson did the right thing by using a Les Paul for this new tuning technology. I found the ability to retune in an instant a real plus. I use several different guitars(tunings)in my gigs. This guitar has such a nice clear voicing that I can pull it in on some acoustic numbers and it holds up. It's versitility allows me to pull out those blue notes, too. This guitar is a joy to play. The main plus: this system does what it's supposed to; It tunes the guitar and easy and fast in several modes and plays great.

The best of the best!

Comments about Gibson Robot Electric Guitar:

Gibson has done it again! This is the guitar for any advanced players. It's a little expensive but I have never had a better chance to say, you get what you pay for. This guitar was CLASS! The Gibson robot is packed with features never seen on the les paul. The only thing is the color choice, the slick futurish glow of the robot gives it a natural view as a guitar. 110% Love this guitar, it is now my main instrument. Good job gibson.
