I believe the multiple tuning issue has been solved......

Postby PostModernOne » Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:22 am

.....sorta.

The Peavy AT 200 electric guitar has the ability to tune to anything at the hot of a button and stay in perfect tune.

The catch? The tuning is done via auto-tune software, so it is not an acoustically driven sound.

The Peavy model is listing for about $600.

Parker has a MaxxFly version out with a piezo pick-up that is going for (wait for it): $6000

For $6000, it would be cheaper to do this:

I am unsure about the whole thing as feeling the guitars vibrations do one thing and another sound coming out may be a tad confusing.

Any thoughts?

It sucks that it wont work on a full acoustic. Perhaps instead of just doing it on a Chet solidbody, maybe try it used as a tailpiece on an archtop semi hollow...? Not 100% acoustic but closer. Oh the things I would do with that thing!

I am not sure how it works, other than the string output is run through a digital pitch corrector. As for the internal size of it or of it can be purchased separately, I have no idea. My guess is that someone soon will come out with a pedal that does the same thing(they already have drop tune models).

The big catch is that you cannot listen to your guitar acoustically as it will not correspond to what you are hearing from the amp.

For loud situations or having an in ear monitor, then maybe. Other than that, I have my doubts.

Anybody know about that Peavey self tuning guitar. It kinda just vanished with no production?

For whatever it may be worth, I have been using a drop tune pedal (it drops the entire guitar down whatever amount you wish) at rehearsal the past two months and the whole "hear the guitar doing one thing while it is acoustically different" seems okay since all I hear is the amp. Hedges ALWAYS used to have monitors when he played. It could work.....maybe?

I have a Boss GT-8 that I use to process my acoustic effects. It has a pitch shifter setting on it. I never use it with my acoustic because I never practice at volumes loud enough to hear only the speakers.

It turns out there are few other options for alternate tuning.

The new Line 6 is an option:http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/JTV59TS/

Still no word on the release date for the Peavey AT 200, though one site has November 1. Just putting it out there...
