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. _________________

fran & paul are some of the original gangstas of the JS days when you'd have to say "phuck"
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.
