The result may look like an electric guitar, but the Gibson HD LP is a complete digital audio system that is poised to usher in a new era of music making.
Guitar legend also known as the father of the electric guitar, Les Paul spent time in New York this week to personally autograph this newest innovation from Gibson Guitar. One hundred limited-edition HD LP guitars have been signed by Les Paul, and are available through online dealer Sweetwater ( http://www.sweetwater.com/feature/gibsondigital/ ). The limited-edition, signed HD.6X-Pro has an MSRP of $7,999 USD. Other unsigned HD.6X-Pro models will also be sold through Sweetwater at an MSRP of $3,999 USD.

The HD.6X-Pro features a hand-oiled mahogany neck, smooth frets and a comfortable profile for effortless playability, and classic Gibson humbuckers for incredible, traditional tone. Media-accelerated Global Information Carrier (MaGIC), an Ethernet with patented Gibson technology, carries bi-directional signals with low latency and no signal degradation over miles of cable.
The HD.6X-Pro’s Hex pickup is composed of six small, patent-pending humbuckers positioned under each string at the bridge. The high-technology pickups send six individual signals to studio grade preamps, allowing the six signals to be immediately digitized. The incredible sensitivity of the Hex pickup and the high-definition signal stream offers dynamic range and sonic possibilities never before imagined. The Breakout Box, known as “BoB,” routes any combination of the six Hex signals to any assigned destination automatically detecting outputs and designations for ease of use and playability.
The HD.6X-Pro Guitar System comes with all the equipment and software needed to explore the limitless sonic possibilities it affords today’s players. Each instrument comes standard with a complete version of Cakewalk SONAR software, and all the plug-ins needed to instantly interface with a computer.
