We tune because we care. Guitar tuning has gone through a bit of a renaissance in the last few years. State of the art tuning gear has leaped ahead in both form and function. Modern devices such as TC Electornics Polytune looks like a prop from 2001 A Space Odyssey and acts like an appliance Elroy Jetson might use on his Space Strat. Alternatively, the Jetsons might rely on robotic maid Rosie to tune the family axes, and there are several non-fictional approaches to this type of tuning as well.
Impressive and expensive devices have been around for a while now for deep-pocketed pickers who didn’t mind selecting a guitar just for the tuners. A few retrofitted, and even non fitted solutions have come and gone, but the latest from Tronical could be a game changer, or at least a Gibson alternative … depending on the as yet unannounced price. Time will tell, so stay tuned (sorry, couldn’t resist.)
