I think its horrifically ugly and would prefer a traditional Les Paul to this any day.

What do you think?

DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

What a coincidence, I prefer almost any guitar to a les paul. I just hate everything about them, from their stupid neck shape that goes from tiny to wayy too thick, to their heavy ass body with shit upper fret access.

i dunno why gibson insists on going this "technological" direction, because their normal guitars are shit right now, rather then investing in this extremely expensive garbage that barely anybody wants, fix what people do want and invest in quality control for the affordable guitars.

yeah because Gibson has always been about the affordable guitars.

Gibson has always been a company that attempts new things, and with technology progressing the way it is, it's only a matter of time before 'traditional' electric guitars become obsolete.

For some reason guitarists fear technology as if it will somehow ruin the traditions of the instrument. The funny thing is, most of you play electric guitars.

gibson were slated for the Flying V and SG models. Now they are a few of the staples of rock guitar choices. This tech approach is the next natural progression to allow for greater creativity and manipulation of sound.

From what I've heard there's a really, really shitty executive that calls pretty much all of the shots at Gibson right now.


Apparently he's a douche and has cut down on quality control to fabricate more money for advertising and worthless garbage like this Dusk Tiger abomination.

nah you read what i meant wrong

i have no problem with automatic tuning guitars, and technology being placed into them, they seem pretty cool,

what i mean is instead of investing in this guitar that only a few select people are going to buy, they should be investing in quality control for their standard guitars, i would love a gibson, but im not going to shell out over 1k$ for sumthing when its quality has issues, and i have a good assumption most people will be looking for a standard les paul over the dusk tiger anyways. when spending the amount of money for a Gibson headstock, every guitar should be immaculate.

the amount of investment in coming up with a whole new design is ridiculously high, rather then wasting that money on something which will be looked at as more of a collectors guitar, fix the problems with the highly sought after studio and standards quality problems

they can't do both.

you mean work on new stuff and attempt to improve quality control?

how do you know they're not doing that?

and if they can still sell units at that price with that quality control why should they improve it?

What's with Gibson and these stupid Robot guitars? They are pretty dumb, people should know how to tune by ear by that point. And if you say "oh well beginners can't tune by ear ololo" well beginners shouldn't spend $3000 on a guitar either. And if you argue "well what about on stage?" it takes a $50 pedal tuner and literally 1 minute if that to tune on stage.

If you are willing to spend $3000 on a guitar you should be good enough by that point to be able to tune by ear. And you'd probably be better off with something you know.. good.

People always say "Well they're always taking risks, Explorer, V, SG, blah blah blah" But honestly I see a really big difference in making "radical" shapes and throwing a floopplin CPU in a guitar.
#32
I played three different ones this afternoon at GC in Boston. I love the way they look in person the guitar actually felt nice and did sound decent but it's another robot guitar too much to go wrong in the future. I also played a Dark Fire basically the same feel and sound. I wouldn't recommend either unless you want some gimmicky guitar.

Oh look, another thread on this.

I think it's horrifically ugly as well. I also have no use for it. But it's not like there's something objectively wrong with it; I have no problem with the principle of the thing.

I don't get what the big deal is. If it had a different name on the headstock, no one would complain. Just look at the Moog guitar. I haven't heard one complaint about it and it's constantly praised and wins awards. But as soon as Gibson makes a guitar that tunes itself and has special pickups, it's a huge mistake.

When someone makes a song that changes tuning and tone dramatically mid-song, then we'll all want one. The thing about these technologically advanced guitars is that they can change the way we play guitar. It can really open up new possibilities. The "can" is the key word since you can play them like a traditional guitar if you want but the innovation is there. Maybe you're fine using the guitar the same way that they've been used for 60 years and that's completely fine, but these guitars exist for the innovative people out there. They open a whole new range of creativity for the people who are willing to experiment and actually use the new technology.
