kenmac1 Posted July 8, 2015 Share Posted July 8, 2015 I'm sure most guitarists are aware of the system Gibson guitars have pretty well pioneered, utilising motorised tuning keys, which will automatically tune a guitar in a couple of seconds. Does anyone know of a system like this that can be fitted to the JTV guitars at all? I assume you could get the Gibson set up fitted to a 59 model, but I have two 69s and an 89F, so I am not sure if a similar system is available to fit those. (Yes I realise it would be pointless fitting one to the 89F with the lockers in place, but I use the 69s far more than the 89 anyhow). My reason is that a lot of the time the HD500X does not recognise the string that is being struck to tune it, and it can be impossible to tune by ear in a noisy venue, so a system like this should be a fantastic addition to the JTVs, as it would ensure we are always spot on in tune, and therefore the alternate tunings (for those who use them) within the digital realm would also be accurate (assuming the intonation has been sorted.) Let me know what is out there guys. I assume someone like Ibanez will soon jump onto the idea, and since the headstock / tuner spacings of the JTVs looks to be much the same, they may retrofit.
