The Gibson Robot Les Paul Studio Ltd. is an electric guitar that offers all the power, tone, and performance of a traditional LP Studio model, with the addition of the revolutionary Robot automatic tuning system.
Gibson's Robot Guitar, the world's first guitar with robotic tuning technology is available once again. You don't have to tune up your car every time you drive it. Now you don't have to tune up your guitar every time you play it. The Robot Guitar does it for you. Just plug it in, dial in the tuning, strum the strings, and play.
The self-tuning system is built into a gorgeous Gibson Les Paul Studio guitar without changing its looks. All the sound and playability that have made the LP one of the most successful electric guitars of all time are retained. To tune itself, the Robot Guitar uses an onboard central processing unit (CPU) that analyzes the pitch of each string as detected by the 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 Gibson Robot Les Paul 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 Guitar's got it covered for you.
The Robot Les Paul Studio Ltd. has a chambered mahogany body with maple top and nitrocellulose finish. The mahogany neck is hand-shaped into a rounded '50s profile and is topped with an ebony fretboard. A Gibson 490R humbucker with Alnico II magnets in the neck position and 498T humbucker with Alnico V magnets in the bridge position provide that "Patent Applied For" sound. Four-conductor wiring allows connection of a push/pull pot for coil-splitting. Wax potting reduces the chances of microphonic feedback. The performance-safeguarding Neutrik jack secures the cord into the guitar.

Comments about Gibson Robot Les Paul Studio Ltd. Electric Guitar:
This is one of the finest axes I have personally ever played. It comes with all of the features a Studio LP does so if you have ever played one you know what to expect. Also, with the automatic tuning feature, I thought was really cool. I first walked into guitar center and it was lust, but as soon as I played it, it was love. The harmonic melodies that this thing can pull off are amazing, as well as the pickups. My advice, if you have some money and are planning, or already are a professional musician, I highly recommend this fine piece of work. Gibson, you have out done yourself!
