Add this electromechanical Tronicle PowerTune from Synthax to your Fender Stratocaster or Gibson Les Paul, and all you need to do is press a button to tune up that ax within two seconds. Have a tin ear? Or are you on a stage with 120dB music blasting in your ears? Dial up the tuning you're looking for, and it's done. Imagine that. As soon as its software is ready, this device will even let you go from one tuning to an alternate tuning in the middle of a song.

It works with three components: servo motors on the tuning heads, a bridge which analyzes the pitches and then the TunedControl multi-knob where you can store various tunings and presets. Available in June for the Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster, and the Gibson Les Paul and Flying V, it'll retail for $800.

It works in a similar way to the $3000 self-tuning guitar we reported on a while ago, but lots cheaper and it's a retrofit instead of an entirely new instrument.
