So, anyone with Min-ETune system with their guitar? I hate tuning between takes when in studio, any comments about this system?

I was just listening to some material that is nearly completed, as far as the mixing and mastering goes, but also considering how it is a bit annoying having to constantly tune.

I never heard of anything like this until your post... This is interesting. I wouldn't purchase a guitar with this installed, but I'd like something similar for tuning.

Well, even if you'd buy a guitar with this system, you could install a regular tuning-system for it later. These things have been available for quite a while, but since early this year, certain Gibson-models had these installed. As said, I'm a lazy tuner and when you're working with slow funeral doom-kind of stuff, even small tuning faults sounds horrible, maybe this could work for that kind of things.

Does it have a lot of tuning options? Seems like it would work great for standard and Eb, but I tune to A. Plus a guitar with a floyd would work when you first put the strings on but once locked down it would do little good. Still better then the Peavey AT-200 auto tune guitar. The evertune system looks like it would be the best though.

Just tune your guitar man. Fuck this shit!
I tune after almost every song, be it rehearsal, live or in studio. Even striking a chord too hard can make your tuning go off a bit, what's the big deal.
I consider my guitars to be living things, let them be what they are. Imperfections make it interesting.

Yes, good for you. But the topic is about this tuning-system, does it work good or not. You have living things, I have tools, quite simple.

Use whatever you want, all the best to you. I just don't believe in this stuff.
Tuning yourself takes the same amount of time. It's part of the deal imo.
Before I enter a studio I get a competent guitar tech to take a look at my equipment and I experience no problems after that.
As for the "living" I mentioned. Environment always is a factor so the device may tune the string but the intonation may still be off.

I don't really get how this would be any easier, 'cause you'd still have to adjust the truss rod and the intonation yourself. If I put my main axe in drop D or even Eb it feels shitty to me unless I make said adjustments or even put heavier strings on. I play with pretty low action though.
Also it doesn't tune any faster than I can. Doesn't it make you strum an open chord first, then play each string seperate to fine tune? How's that faster? Silly gimmick.
