Min-ETune

The Min-ETune system keeps your guitar tuned to standard pitch as well as alternate tunings quickly and accurately. A guitar with Min-ETune feels the same, looks the same (the unit mounts onto the back of your guitar’s headstock), and plays the same. But most importantly, it sounds the same since Min-ETune works by tuning the actual strings, not by digital trickery that degrades your tone.

This clip is just to show you how easy it is.

As well as a selection of pre programmed tunings, there is a bank for 12 custom settings. As I’m only a beginner, I’ve not used this function, however I’m sure this would greatly benefit live performances where you need to be quick and accurate.

The only thing I do worry about, is having new strings, but will cross that bridge when I come to it!

Rating for Epiphone Les Paul Custom-T with Min-ETune 5/5
