"Tunes itself...kinda"

Gibson has been experimenting with different technology lately. This is one of the products of their experiments. This is one of those computerized tuning guitars, and it's something that I'm really not a fan of. The guitar features a mahogany body with a marblewood top, mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard, 22 frets, special inlays, pickguard, binding, hard tail bridge, two pickups, a volume control, a tone control, special EQ, special switch, etc.

UTILIZATION

The guitar has tons and tons of technology thrown into it, and it's really annoying. First of all, the guitar will tune itself, and you can adjust the tunings you want with the touch of a knob. However, you really need a computer to deal with all of the technology that's thrown in here. I don't know about you, but I don't like to have to sit around a computer all the time when I want to adjust settings and other things like that. I find it more annoying than inspiring. The overall guitar is put together nicely, but that's really about all it has going for it. The guitar is pretty light because they're using chambered bodies, and I'm not really a fan of chambered bodies. The weight relief holes are fine, but once they start chambering them, I find that they lack something in the top end.

SOUNDS

The guitar is somewhat sterile sounding. The bridge is actually supposed to be a burstbucker, and the neck is one of their famous P90s. The burstbucker in the bridge is a decent pickup, but I'm not the biggest fan of it. Some people absolutely love them, but I find myself just wanting a JB or Custom. They seem to really suit these guitars better. The P90 in the neck was great for blues and rock, but if you want to play something heavier, you're going to be struggling a bit. There are also tons of different parametric EQ presets and all kinds of other sounds you can adjust, but you need a computer to fully utilize all this nonsense, and I don't have the time for all of that.

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar itself has tons of features, and I love that. However, I just dislike the way they're implemented. On top of that, this guitar costs a fortune for what it is. It's only an average sounding guitar plugged straight into the amp, and nothing is really gained with all of the technology they shoved in this. I'd rather have a rack and deal with that than deal with this stuff all in the guitar. That's the biggest gripe I have with this guitar.
