The new Gibson Les Paul has gone digital. The cutting edge guitar gives you incredible recording control and new effect possibilities. The Gibson HD.6X-PRO lets you record and apply a different effect to each string separately. At $5,000, this guitar is considered as a sound designer's dream.

The first run of the Gibson HD.6X-PRO was limited to just 100, with each guitar personally signed by Les Paul at a hefty price of $7,999.

Implications - The rise in digital music production has forced analog instrument makers to create tech-savvy solutions to appeal to the changing market. Digital guitars that retain the aesthetics of their traditional counterparts blend the best of past and present.
