Gibson Guitar Corporation has joined forces with computer chip manufacturers 3Com and Xilinx to produce an all-digital guitar to be released later this year. The guitar boasts new technology that will convert traditional analog signals to high-quality digital signals inside of the guitar.

Gibson says the new guitar will work to completely eliminate analog line signals and stray frequencies, providing a clean sound minus the “hum” that mono and stereo outputs create. Another perk of the digital guitar is the string-by-string signal processing. This technology will allow players to control volume, pan and equalization of each individual string.

The new guitar will cost approximately $1,000 - $1,500 more than a Gibson standard model electric guitar. Gibson also says it will be 100% compatible with all of their existing equipment.
