Les Pauls go out of tune when you look at them wrong. A robot ain't gonna solve that shit.

Speak for yourself, you lazy bugger. Mind you, I expect they sell many more on Gibsons than on anything else. The way the tuning on my V changes with temperature is just meh.

it's just a really stupid gimmick in my opinion, and a solution to a problem that doesn't really exist.

tuning by ear or even with a tuner and listening out for the nuances is a skill you develop over time. you're not going to win any prizes for doing it, but it's going to improve your ability to play by ear and recognise when you've fallen out of tune. one of the numerous little micro skills that helps round you out as a guitarist.

plus how many years will the thing last? i'd like to think a guitar of the "calibre" (price) will last indefinitely, upward of 50 years potentially at least. is that shitty little box going to?

Have you seriously not read the thing about the extended fingerboard either side of the string spread? That's like, 50x worse IMO. In any case, they were both done for the same reason: so people who don't know how to play guitar can get their E-string finger vibrato goin onz.

+1 and some.

When I was home for two days last month I saw/touched them at the Pasadena Guitar Center. Wide neck can't possibly be what the sports fans want in a "classic". Everything looked and felt so wrong.

And I've probably said it before, but I'm convinced that only one person on this planet is excited about the LITTLE BLACK DOOHICKEY.

I'm probably the only one, but I think the wide neck is a cool idea, no so much that they use the same bridge and string spacing (not hard to fix). Not that I'm going to pay that much and actually buy one, but I like the idea.

I kind of like how wack the ideas are. Twenty years from now everyone will be bitching about it still, (Norlin era?), but there'll be a small group of 2015 obsessives who insist that they were something magical.

It's not like any of us are going to buy this shit, get a Gibson from a different year. Brand new Gibbos are for people going through a midlife crisis.
