Gibson's robo-guitar tunes itself

But will it teach us how to play?


It was bound to happen, given all the madness that appears to have gripped the guitar business: the world's first robot guitar.

The "Gibson Robot Guitar," to be exact, available in its debut next month in "an exclusive Blue Silverburst Les Paul model" before the regular version comes out later next year, according to the company. The robo-tar supposedly can tune all six strings "within a few seconds," Engadget says, with commands from the "Master Control Knob."

But first things first. We're holding out for a teaching version, as it would probably help if we learned how to play.
