"We had an Epiphone Masterbuilt Robot acoustic guitar with the prototype of our "tuning light" system which we call "TuneStar" at NAMM last week.

Unfortunately somebody has stolen it in Anaheim in front of the Hilton Hotel close to the convention center.
This prototype is very important for us as the technology and the software is adapted and adjusted to just that acoustic type of guitar.
Fortunately we implemented a lock for the software and an operational code that the user has to enter first, otherwise the system wont be operational!!
Nevertheless, we need this prototype back URGENTLY. We would be very happy if the "thief" would send us the guitar or at least the system back to Germany.
I do hope that people will understand that, maybe even if somebody sees this prototype somewhere he could drop us a line???

Oh that's really strange.  How much you want to bet the thief has absolutely NO idea what he holds in his hands?
He's probably already pawned it for god-only-knows-what.

Robot acoustic though - very cool idea!

yup. wait till the robot guitar starts playing itself at full volume in the middle of the night.
(I'm sure they would have implemented this security feature first.)

I'd like to build an electric guitar that has a biometric fingerprint reader on it.
This way only the registered owner can play it without tearing its guts out.

Since it was the one and only prototype and was stolen before being displayed, and Tronical in this form are no longer, I guess there will never be a picture.
But here is TronicalTune

That's disheartening to hear. I guess I need to make do with the Tronical Tune.
