What makes it super?
Enter the Tronical Powertune automated tuning system and the name that would perhaps come to define Gibson’s current crop of super axes, the Robot. Not only does it self-tune but it also features a rotary Master Control Knob that gives access to a range of customisable alternate tunings including Open E, DADGAD, Drop D and more.
Gibson took the Robot brand a step further in 2008 by releasing a Robot Les Paul Studio and SG Special, and then again in 2010 with what we think is Gibson’s best-looking super guitar yet, the Robot Les Paul Jr Special (pictured above). Yes, it looks just like a '50s Les Paul Special, but that's the point. We guitarists are a conservative bunch.
