Gibson Announces Min-ETune Aftermarket Robot Tuning System

Min-ETune is a small, compact, battery-powered tuning unit that sits on the back of the headstock.

Nashville, TN (November 28, 2012) -- Five years after introducing the Robot Les Paul, Gibson has announced an add-on product to potentially add the technology to any guitar. It appears that the Min-ETune is currently only being offered as an upgrade to a wide range of Gibson's offerings, and not yet as a standalone product. Here's what Gibson has to say about the technology:

Min-ETune is a small compact battery powered tuning unit that sits on the back of the guitar — a mighty enhancement to an already great instrument. No need for screws, wiring or routing, in fact the system is hardly visible from the front of the guitar. You can still adjust the tuning pegs manually or turn on the Min-ETune to choose from 12 popular tunings or program 6 of your own.

A guitar with Min-ETune looks the same, feels the same, plays the same and rocks the same - it’s just always in tune. Adjust to other instruments' imperfect tuning with Reference Tuning and keep that harmony going. Perfect for home, studio and gigging: The internal lithium battery lasts for 80 to 100 tunings on just one charge. Rock longer with the fast and accurate Min-ETune, tuning your guitar in just 3 seconds and 1 strum.
