THE DRIVE TO ANNETTE PEACOCK: DIVERSION #3: THE GIBSON ROBOT
I was reading about this in the paper a few days ago: The Gibson Robot...apparently, a self-tuning guitar. Sounds like the tech has finally caught up with Godley & Creme's Gizmo - a topic that we were luxuriating in a few weeks back - to create a gtr with tiny servo-motors that will automatically tune itself up for you. If my memory serves me right, you can also set it to some slightly more exotic non-standard (non-Western?) tunings. I wonder if Sonic Youth could subvert one of these...?
