Gibson digital guitar

Gibson today began shipping the HD.6X-Pro digital guitar, an instrument which the company calls a revolutionary first for professional musicians. The guitar's unique Hex pickup immediately converts the motion of the strings into a pre-amped digital signal that can produce studio-grade output regardless of the intended destination. The HD.6X-Pro features a standard 0.25-inch output for conventional amplifiers with support for other devices via Gibson's Ethernet-based MaGIC system, ensuring a direct connection to computers while greatly simplifying the wiring process. Attached to an included breakout box, a single Ethernet cable carries all the needed input and output signals for miles without a loss in quality, according to Electronista. The guitar is available through Sweetwater for $4,000; a limited run of 100 guitars signed by Les Paul is also shipping for $8,000 each.
