It seems like Gibson are hell-bent on promoting this system and most new Gibsons appear to have it as standard. I get the impression they are doing this in the face of some consumer resistance - presumably they are banking on people learning to love it eventually?
Anyway, I got to wondering......
Are they only on Gibsons or do any other makers offer them?
Are they on basses? Acoustics?
I personally think that on a guitar its a solution for a problem that doesn't exist - a guitar isn't that hard to tune surely?
However what about a piano? Lots of strings and a very subtle and subjective art to tuning one - couldn't the system be put to better use on a piano? Maybe in conjunction with some software?
