Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI am joined by Aljon from Gibson to talk about the newest technologies for the musician. We are surrounded by a wall of Les Paul guitars, basses and more. Aljon shows us the newest version of the tunable guitar system with a big change. About Gibson Min-ETune Before you would lift the knob on the guitar to get the tune. Now the tuning system is based on the neck. The system is called Min-ETune.

Aljon shows off not only the standard Les Paul but also shows us the Gibson SG model for $999 with Min-ETune. The Gibson Signature T is around $2200 with Min-ETune installed.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWrapping your headphones up can be a hassle. I try to train my headphones so they wrap up nicely in a loop but sometimes they don’t stay that way and I have to untangle. That is why I really like CordCruncher. About CordCruncher Cord Cruncher is a different way to wrap up your headphones simply because they come with their own wrangling case. Pull them out and simply pull the headphones from the tube to extend. When you are done just pull on the tube to retract the cord. You can then wrap them around your wrist or put them in the bag. The 3.5 inch headphone jack will connect with the other end so you can loop them up and snap into place. That is pretty ingenious! CordCruncher comes in 4 colors and is available for $24.99 (www.cordcruncher.com)
