Auto-Tune: Love it or hate it, it's certainly made its mark on pop music. And now it's in a guitar: the Peavey AT-200 Guitar Featuring Auto-Tune For Guitar Technology, to give its full longer-than-a-Skynyrd-solo title. We'll just call it the Auto-axe. Rock on!
It looks just like a regular guitar, but push a button on the Auto-axe and you can play with perfect pitch, the adjustments made live in real time. Peavey reckons you'll never stop playing to retune your guitar ever again, and every chord will sound perfect.
The onboard Antares Solid-Tune intonation system monitors the precise pitch of each individual string and electronically corrects pitch to ensure every chord, riff, and lick is in tune. Peavey claims it's even smart enough to know when axemeisters intend to manipulate pitch, so bends and vibrato rock as hard as the plank-spanker intends.
