Tradition and technology combine in one innovative instrument! The Gibson Robot series offers a standard EADGBE tuning along with 6 other, totally programmable presets. Imagine being able to go from standard tuning to open G in seconds. All of the popular tunings are here. An incredible tool for the gigging musician. It even has a mode to allow you to set intonation! I know many folks didn't get why these were so cool, but a noisy, dark stage is not my favorite place to squint at an electronic tuner or trust my old ears. All other features are classic Gibson. The body is made of mahogany and the top is carved maple, a classic Gibson tone recipe. The mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. Gibson 490R and 498T humbuckers deliver big tone. A Stopbar tailpiece and a Tuneomatic bridge keep it rock solid. The finish is a cool Candy Apple Red lacquer.  A great looking guitar with tone and innovation to spare.This Les Paul sounds and plays great.
