Is this maybe it? Looks kinda cool, either way.

Re: That revolutionary thing?

It has a Roland GK-3 pickup on it, which is how it's able to do all that crazy stuff. It's too bad that Ibanez hasn't offered integrated Roland pickups on more guitars. I've only seen it on a JCRG21 and some lower end RG I believe. The RG1520X had a Roland interface, but it used piezo saddles, which I've heard can be an issue with palm muting.

Re: That revolutionary thing?

I'm still trying to process this - "a non floating tremelo that just moves back and forth and not up and down and its impossible to go out of tune." I'm guessing that if it's non-floating you can bend notes without others going flat...sounds like a dream come true in a trem

It's a sliding trem. The strings themselves will go out of tune....a lot. The GK software adapts to correct the tuning which is also why you can set it to ANY tuning you can imagine just by turning the selector (tone knob)

Thumbs down Re: That revolutionary thing?

I dunno guys, but this is where, as far as I'm concerned, playing real guitar ends and the technofiddling starts...

Re: That revolutionary thing?

Steve has had a guitar with a linear trem since 2005 (Flo II), although that one now is with Thomas.

This particular guitar being transformed by Thomas into the next superjem. The tuning system mentioned in the post is the Antares Auto Tune. It's really amazing. Thomas had the same tuner system installed in his Evo Replica.

Re: That revolutionary thing?

I like the auto tuning idea,especially for live.....but i prefer the simple cheaper versions of the technology with the tuning aspect only.

Gibson is doing it for a while now and it works great. But than, people are not allowed to say something good about Gibson. Anyhow. already there.

That's not totally true, I dig Gibsons/Epiphones. I think the Epi Les Pauls are a great deal.

If I could find a white Epi LP elitist, I'd jump all over it...........
