Gibson's Robot Les Paul electric guitar has won the Best Music Hardware gong at the BT Digital Music Awards.

The guitar not only self-tunes and self-intonates, but also features a rotary master control knob that gives access to a range of customisable alternate tunings including Open E, DADGAD, Drop D and several others.

"The Robot guitar was a vision I had for many years prior to its production and to win goes to prove that it has been embraced by musicians around the world and I am delighted," said Henry Juszkiewicz of Gibson Guitar.
