What makes it super?
The Dusk Tiger combines and refines many of its predecessors’ features, offering the new and improved third generation of Robot technology and a redesigned Master Control Knob - the MCK II - addressing some of the usability issues that hobbled the Dark Fire. In addition, Gibson's Chameleon tone-editing software allows deep access to its sounds. You can sculpt a tone in terms of EQ, pickup selection, phase, coil-split and piezo blend, design a tuning to go with it and save the whole thing in one of the user preset slots for on-the-fly access.
Unfortunately, the Dusk Tiger’s appearance was the subject of a great deal of disdain on its release, overshadowing its innovative new features. Still, progress is progress whether you like the combination of marblewood top, chrome-plated bling and tigerstripe back or not. We kinda dig this kitty's pimped-out style. Grrrrr.
