GET IN TUNE with Min-ETune™
Gibson introduces the Min-ETune™, an automated system that tunes your guitar in seconds so you can spend more time playing.
Min-ETune™ is a small, compact battery-powered tuning unit attached to the back of the guitar and invisible from the front. You can adjust the tuning pegs manually or turn on the Min-ETuneTM to choose from 12 popular tunings or program 6 of your own.
A guitar with Min-ETune™ looks the same, feels the same, and plays the same. — it’s just always in tune. Perfect for home, studio and gigging — it even adjusts your guitar's tunings to match other instruments' with the reference tuning feature. This allows you to play longer without having to stop and either change guitars or spend time manually tuning. MinEtune is fast, accurate and can quickly tune your guitar 80 to 100 times on one charge.
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.
