Time Recognizes Digital Guitar

The Gibson Digital Guitar has been named one of 2003’s coolest inventions by Time magazine. The instrument features a classic Gibson guitar along with Gibson’s patented HEX pick up, which senses up-and-down motion and side-to-side motion for each string. The technology that enables the Gibson digital guitar is an Ethernet media delivery system called MaGIC, developed by Gibson Labs. MaGIC stands for Media-accelerated Global Information Carrier and is designed to replace all wiring systems in the musical instrument field and in consumer electronic applications. 11/10/03
