Play guitar for any extended period of time, and odds are that you’ll be able to quickly and easily tune it by ear alone.  But tuning your guitar’s strings to a performance worthy level generally requires a roadie or a respectable amount of patience with a tuner.  Unless of course you’ve got a Gibson Min-ETune guitar.

While you can’t buy the Min-ETune and apply it to your existing guitar, the Mini-ETune, which once was only available on Gibson’s high-end instruments, is now available on 11 presumably affordable axes, which range from the made-for-the-stage SG to the mighty Les Paul.

Unlike other comparable systems, the Min-ETune guitar actually listens to your strummed strings and mechanically tunes all six simultaneously, with an accuracy of 2 cents, in seconds. Apparently, you can even preset the strings to your liking, such as that of an off tune piano, or to drop-D for your fave Nirvana song.

Sorry, no word on a price just yet.
