OVERVIEW

The Robot invasion continues.

The Gibson Robot Explorer Ltd. is an electric guitar that offers all the power, tone, and performance of a traditional Explorer model, with the addition of the revolutionary Robot automatic tuning system.

Gibson's Robot Guitar, the world's first guitar with robotic tuning technology means you don't have to tune up your guitar every time you play it. The Robot Guitar does it for you. Just plug it in, dial in the tuning, strum the strings, and play.

The self-tuning system is built into a gorgeous Gibson Explorer Ltd. guitar without changing its looks. All the sound and playability that have made the Explorer one of the most successful electric guitars of all time are retained. To tune itself, the Robot Guitar uses an onboard central processing unit (CPU) that analyzes the pitch of each string as detected by the Tune-Control bridge. Tuning information from the CPU is relayed to the motorized tuning machines that efficiently adjust each string to the correct pitch with a distinctive whirring sound that lets you know Robot Guitar is on the job.

You activate the Gibson Robot Explorer with the Master Control Knob (MCK) that functions as a tone control in the down position and is pulled up to activate the tuning system. In addition to standard (A-440Hz) tuning, six commonly used tunings are selectable from the MCK. Users can also program their own custom tunings as well as set the guitar's intonation. Now, with the Gibson Robot Guitar, you'll spend more time playing in tune. In live performance you can easily change tunings practically soundlessly on the fly, keeping your show flowing smoothly. There's no longer any need to haul several instruments to the gig to cover various tunings”The Robot does it all for you!

The Robot Explorer Ltd. has a mahogany body with a nitrocellulose finish. The mahogany neck is hand-shaped into a rounded C-shaped profile and is topped with a rosewood fretboard. A Gibson 496R Hot Ceramic humbucker in the neck position and 500T Super Ceramic humbucker in the bridge position deliver smokin' tone. Four-conductor wiring allows connection of a push/pull pot for coil-splitting. Wax potting reduces the chances of microphonic feedback. The performance-safeguarding Neutrik jack secures the cord into the guitar.
