    Some morning reading:

    Think they should have this for bass? Is it worth it?

    Wanna hear Jimmy Page speak? :)

    From the webpage:

    • Always being in tune is a great thing
    • Change tuning or pitch while you play
    • Standard tuning to drop D instantly
    • Reduce the need for additional guitars
    • Avoid embarrassing tuning problems on stage
    • Save money by minimizing tuning time in studio
    • Set new moods by changing tuning DURING a song
    • Synchronize your tuning changes to match a song's tempo
    • Take your song writing in new directions

    I like the idea of changing tune during a song. Sounds like fun.

    Just something interesting I picked up from slashdot.

    i thought it looked cool as well. it would be great during a solo to all of a sudden change to hawaiian slack key or some weird middle eastern key.

    im not sure how useful it would be for bass, unless you play lots of chords.

    Sounds like a gimmick to me. I can tell when I'm out of tune, I don't have to modify my guitar to know that :p
