Gibson's second robo-guitar gets pimped out

The self-tuning SG version comes in metallic purple.

Gibson

The idea of a robotic guitar that tunes itself seemed like an interesting concept when it came out last year but, much to our surprise, it generated more than a bit of controversy. That's not necessarily a bad thing for Gibson, which will probably reap the benefits of more publicity for the release of its second model.

In addition to the automated functions of the original, the SG version of the Gibson Robot Guitar is distinguishable by one blindingly obvious feature: It's purple. Not just any purple, but metallic.

Engadget says the SG will be more widely available than its predecessor, though that may not be necessary given its garish hue. In the meantime, you can see the original in action here.
