Gibson Digital Guitar

Gibson Digital Guitar I haven't been able to find a dealer offering this particular Gibson guitar for sale, but the idea is certainly intriguing. Greater control over sonic output opens a completely new spectrum of creative output for the next generation of rock stars. Just think, a fully digital guitar offers the possibility of turning a separate amp to eleven for each string on the guitar. As a purest, I'll be interested to follow the obvious debate over which version of the guitar sounds better. What I really want to know is, will everything be recorded with an open tuning, using pitch-shifting to alter sounds, or will guitarists still need to retune?
