The Gibson Firebird X rocks up with features such as fourth-generation Robot tuners for automatic tuning, on-board effects and wireless bluetooth pedals.

It even allows for third-party developers to chip in with their own apps for an even greater number of add-ons and effects. These'll be sold through an authorised e-store, Gibson promised it will set up soon.
