    Well that makes sense. There's probably something wrong with them. I mean, they are probably just tone deaf or not really musically inclined in general. I don't think any sort of tuner is going to help or hinder their ability in any way.

    I'm simply pointing out that the skill of tuning does seem to go hand in hand with actually being able to play.:)

    Oh, definitely! If I could play half as good as I can tune, I'd be a legend :laugh2:

    Texting: No requirement for reading, writing or spelling.

    Autotune: No requirement for singing ability.

    Sequencers+Samples: No requirement for playing ability.

    YouTwitFace: No requirement to make real friends.

    Perhaps Gibson have realised that in today's World,
    having to do something so primitive as tuning a guitar
    manually is an alien concept.

    Certainly not.
    I just like old lookin' guitars with good ol' fashion manually geared tuners.
    I'm sure there must be many that like the Min-etunes I was just asking why does everybody get them in 2014 when not everybody wants them....... I just have another beer and remember the good ol' days.......

    Add me to the PM list if you have Min E-tunes and want to sell them.

    Been playing guitar for 35+ years now and can certainly tune quite well manually, but I'd like to have them in order to change between alternate tunings in about a second and a half - in the middle of a set.

    Currently I play some songs in Open E and swap guitars, I'd love to add some other tunings but don't want to carry even more guitars.

    So, please DO hit me, as I've considered buying it direct from Tronical - we could both win here! :)

    This is the least persuasive argument I have heard. Did Vladimir Horowitz know how to tune his piano? By the way, if playing in a combo with other "fixed pitch" instruments (Piano, harp, certain flutes and other woodwinds, etc.), where a good ear and manual tuning are important, the 40:1 tuners make that precise tuning much easier than the clumsy 18:1 or 14:1 on most guitars.

    I played a gig last night at a local club. The lead guitarist of the band that played before me had 5 different guitars, all in different tunings. Gibson's Min-Etune thing probably would have been nice for that. 5 guitars is a lot to lug around. I gripe about having to bring 2. However, among his 5 guitars was a lap steel, a resonator, and some other oddball thing. Sure, the auto-tuner would've solved the variety of tunings, but would've done nothing to get the various tones he was looking for.

    Just sayin.

    I need another guitar like I need a hole in my head, but maybe the next one will have min-Etune on it.
