The Gibson Robot Guitar was awarded with the prestigious "Best Music Hardware Award" at the BT Digital Music Awards 2008. The BT Digital Music Awards now in its seventh year was held at the Roundhouse in London on Wednesday 1st October. The Gibson Robot guitar is the world's first guitar with robotic technology and beat stiff competition from the Motorola ROKR E8 and Ripserver. The Best Music Hardware Award in association with Stuff Magazine was decided upon by a panel of distinguished industry judges. The Gibson Robot Guitar was sighted for its innovation, usability, style and price point among other features. The Gibson Robot Guitar eliminates tuning problems for guitarists. It automatically tunes to standard A440 tuning. It also allows players to access six commonly used altered tuning presets at the push of a button. It allows the guitar to be intonated in seconds after string changes, truss rod adjustments or change in weather conditions. Finally, with the locking tuner, single string changes or changing the entire set of strings are an automated breeze. The annual Digital Music Awards were presented by TV's Fearne Cotton and Rufus Hound and was filmed for ITV2. Bands performing in between the awards included Sugababes, Ida Maria, British Sea Power, Sam Beeton, Fightstar and Iglu & Hartly. Thirteen of the 20 awards given were voted for online and the remaining seven by a panel of industry experts. For more information on the Gibson Robot Guitar please visit this location.
