Gibson didn't invent self tuning guitars ... There is a company called Transperformance that has a self tuning system for gutiars. They have been making it for years, at first it was just available for thicker body guitars like the Les Paul , but now they apparently can install it in Tele's Strats etc... http://transperformance.com/perform/index2.htm I saw the Les Paul demo'd at the summer NAMM Show several years ago, it worked great, retuned really fast, and seemed to be dead on in tune. Their system replaces the bridge though , doesn't use self powered tuners. Jimmy Page bought one , there is an interview with him on the site. Also a video of Graham Nash using it and another guy demoing it, really cool. http://transperformance.com/multimedia/index1.html For anyone who uses a lot of different tunings seems like a must have to me.
