Hi all, just got a Gibson Robot and so far I'm very impressed with it! The tone..the tuning system..the colour, it's all good.

However..when I try to tune to any of the tuning settings, the bass E string won't tune. It just remains red. All the other strings are fine. Any chance I've accidently turned on a setting which keeps the string from tuning, or is there something more serious going on? The guitar has not sustained any bumps or damage whatsoever, it's only a few hours christened! Advice/help?

Thank-you.

PS..this is only a recent development..there was no problem tuning the bass E string before.

You bought one? Here I though no one would buy one! Well, I guess I was proven wrong.
You probably just jumbled the tuning settings or maybe a gear is busted in the tuner.

As soon as I heard about the guitar I knew that it'd cause endless problems, especially over time

So when you tune it manually (can you tune it manually...?), does it tune?

oh, the string will tune manually..kind of takes away from the whole automatic tuning experience though! *sigh

The whole self-tuning thing is kind of a gimmick IMHO.

See this is the problem when you put computer technology in guitars: they can crash or be buggy.

On the other hand, maybe you have to strum the string harder to "kick in" the mechanism, or maybe the tuner is broken. To bad you can't "restart"

this might help. Idunno. Customer support has the means and the knowledge to help you, doesnt mean they will. Why did u get the Robot guitar anyway.

. . .please don't tell me that you can't manually tune this?


If the gears broke you can't manually tune any guitar. I guess the Robot just puts too much pressure on it somehow?
