Get a sneak peek at Gibson's Robot Guitar

Critically acclaimed musician Martin Luther will demonstrate Gibson's revolutionary self-tuning guitar at a free show in San Rafael, Calif.

What do you get when you combine a guitar loaded with robotic technology with one of the most talented musicians of this day and age? Hopefully, one hell of a show.

Guitarist/musician/former choir boy Martin Luther will be showcasing Gibson's self-tuning Robot Guitar at a free show in San Rafael, Calif.

Luther, who recorded the critically acclaimed album Rebel Soul Music in 2004 and recently toured with The Roots, will play the Bananas At Large instrument store on Monday, December 3.

Following the show, which starts at 12:30 p.m., there will be a public question-and-answer session to explain the intricacies of the Robot Guitar. Gibson's guitar doesn't go on sale until December 7 at select stores. According to the guitar-maker's Web site, only ten of the new guitars will be available per store. Although there's no pricing info available yet, the combination of robotics and limited availability means it's sure to cost a pretty penny.

If you can't make it to the show, Gibson has a few promo videos of the Robot Guitar below.
