Hi,

 

I was wondering if it was possible to get the Robo Tuning system 'thingy' for the JTV59.  

 

Has anyone managed to get one on theirs?

 

Regards

sounds dangerous... can you imagine initiating that to retune but opps forgot i had the variax dialed down a step...

=loads of extra neck tension, and/or snapped strings...

i do imagine it can be done though....

Why would you want to do that, given the alternate tuning capabilities of the JTV guitars?

I have a Gibson Robot SG that is like an upgraded SG Standard. The tuners work fine; but my JTV Vax 69 is MUCH faster and easier to switch between songs. Of course, the G-Robot's advantage is that it really re-tunes your guitar just as you would normally retune any guitar.  String tension changes just like manual changes.

I can see why CW would want to go that route, just to stay in-tune. But some nice locking tuners would be a cheaper sollution, imho.

 

Kind regards,

As others have pointed out the Variax offers faster and more versatile tuning capabilities than the robot tuning. Also keep in mind that the robo tuning will ruin strings through metal fatigue, will mess up the action of the guitar and will warp the neck of the guitar over time.

Cheers,
