Hey Pit,

For one of my marketing classes, I am doing an Industry Analysis of the Electric Guitar Industry. The last section of the paper is about predictions for the future of the industry, and also what a business could do to gain a competitive advantage in this industry.

So I was just wondering what you all thought about where you see electric guitars going to in the future. You know, like Line 6 Variax stuff.

Laments terms: Electric guitars...future...go.

Cheers

i'd have to say self tuning guitars like the gibson robot will be very common and affordable

guitars will be more and more expensive as quality wood grows rarer and rarer...i dunno that might be wrong

I doubt the actual guitars will really change except the prices. Super-futuristic guitars like Steinbergers, Variax, and the "Robot" LP will still be niche products. People will still be playing Fenders, Gibsons, or clones thereof. I think most of the change will come on the amplification side. I think we'll continued improvement in modeling technology, and better hybrid technology like the Bogner/Line 6 Spider Valve will be more popular.

Yeah, that is correct, in fact in my research, Greenpeace is pushing forward to try and stop the use of wood in guitar building. I can't see this happening, can carbon-fiber really produce the same tone quality as quality wood?

I think that we will see many more affordable guitar companies start to hit it big like agile and jay turser
