Re: The evertune?

that looks pretty cool. What ever happened to that monstrosity that Jimmy Page was using the one where you could program different tunings into it and access them via a keypad on the guitar.

Re: The evertune?

Expensive, will wear out eventually, and is pretty much snake oil if you ask me.

String bends confuse me, and any kind of vibrato would be more difficult I would think.

Perhaps for straight up punk or 3 chord rock this would have a great usage, especially onstage, but I think the usefullness ends there.

Actually, string bending is easy. I read and article about it, and its hard to explain how...but i know its very easy.

And...everything wears out eventually.

Gibson has the Firebird X (not sure if that is what you are refering too or not) http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Elec...irebird-X.aspx . Can you imagine what fun you are going to have when this thing goes out of whack. No tech anywhere would be able to fix it.

Jimmy Page used the Transperformance system, looks like they have renamed it now. http://axcenttuning.com/
