So that's it, then? A limited-run, programmable, robot-equipped, EQ-equipped guitar with a DSP and wireless techonolgy so it can talk to a wireless selector "pedal"...all with an MSRP of $5500.

OK....I think that's why they call it "dope''...better pass that doobie next time!

The definitions of the words 'revolutionary' and 'uprising' seem to have changed since I was a kid.

I'm embarrassed for Gibson today. Seriously.

So when it gets to the stores, it's going to have a price tag of around 3 grand!!!

But something doesn't add up. What's with all the stuff about china? Surely this thing isn't made in China? A $3000 "digital" guitar that's made in China?

Once again

Here's the article:

fr.audiofanzine.com/guitare-de-forme-flying-v-explor/gibson/firebird-x/news/a.play,n.13549.html - Translator

Rough translation...

Quote:

Gibson donne ce matin une conférence de presse au Hard-Rock Café de New York, un endroit spécial pour dévoiler sa “Revolution”, une guitare Firebird X bluetooth.

Fini le numérique dans les guitares Gibson, comme l’annonçait son PDG il y a quelques jours ? Pas si sûr ! La prochaine guitare Gibson Firebird X, qui sera disponible à partir du 12 novembre à seulement 1800 exemplaires, serait bourrée d’électronique et intégrera notamment un microprocesseur et un système bluetooth.



Plus d’infos très vite, on sait déjà, en plus de la date de sortie, que son prix est annoncé à $5500.
