Gibson is launching two more Robot Guitars -- a Les Paul and an SG

Nashville, TV (April 10, 2008) -- Gibson is giving customers another chance to buy its Limited Edition Robot Guitar -- this time in both Les Paul and SG styles. The original Robot became instantly known as a major industry innovation as the world''s first self-tuning guitar.

Since only 4000 customers got to enjoy the original December 7, 2007, launch, Gibson decided to produce two more models. Due to large demand by customers, the company made an SG model to match the original Les Paul design. Both the Robot SG Special LTD and the Robot Les Paul Studio LTD are available now at Gibson.
