Seems to be a good idea if you like alternate tunings, but the lack of whammy bar is a bummer to me.

Never used it, but for the reviews i've seen, it seems to work pretty well, and unlike the robot system you can always install regular tuners if you don't like it anymore, so if you see a les paul wit it, i think it is worth the try at least.

Re: Gibson Les Paul with "Min-Etune"??

It's not like I can't tune a guitar or anything... but I like to cue up my backing tracks on my laptop and run it into some monitors. It's fun to jam along with, especially since I don't really know any other musicians in my area. Inevitably it comes to some Disturbed or Motley Crue thats in a different dropped tuning... or Allman Bros that tuned a 1/2 step sharp. Would be nice to hit a button and retune. Otherwise it's a trip to the closet if I left another guitar in a different tuning... or skip it, which I normally do.

I'm about as old school as they get... but a good automatic tuning system would be nice to have. Not a digital pitch shifter like the Peavey is... I think, but a real string adjusting one. Thats a gadget I could live with!

Gibson Les Paul with "Min-Etune"??

Have you guys seen this Les Paul with auto-tuning setup? How well does this work?

I tried to put a link in here, but the site shut it down - just google "american musical gibson min etune"

The info on the site says:


Min-ETune is a small compact battery powered tuning system that is hardly visible from the front of the guitar and allows you to choose from 12 popular tunings or program 6 of your own! Perfect for home, studio and gigging - it even adjusts your guitar's tunings to match other instruments' with the reference tuning feature. All you have to do is PUSH the button, STRUM, get TUNED and ROCK out.

Digital tuners that emulate open tunings are available, but because the Min-ETune physically turns the tuners, the system is always natural. There is no delay, no dampening and no dead sound - just the natural vibration of guitar strings in total harmony with the amp producing ringing harmonics and powerful sustain. Go from a pop songs in E Standard, grunge song in Drop D, an alt metal song in D Standard, and a blues song in open G quickly and all with one guitar!

Min-ETune System Features

•12 factory stored preset tunings and 6 user programmable presets
•Changes from Standard to Eb tuning in 20 seconds
•Re-freshes tuning in 3 seconds or 1 strum
•40-1 gear ratio
•Lithium battery lasts for 80-100 tunings on 1 charge
•Lightweight system
•Vintage style button


I thought Peavey had an electronic version of this... but the Gibson Min-Etune actually physicllay turns the tuners. Just set what tuning you want and strum the guitar... wait a few seconds and you're tuned to whatever tuning you desire.

Anyone try one?
