Today Gibson announced that they’ve developed a tiny microchip to be mounted into the headstock of every new Gibson guitars. The chip has GPS, breaking┬ásensors and wi-fi.

When a Gibson guitar headstock breaks off (that is a rather frequent incident due to the company refuses to use neck volute or any form of proper reinforcement) the chip will send a report to the company using the next available free wi-fi hotspot.
Gibson lawyers are researching the opportunities how to collect commission using the transmitted data after every fixed broken headstock from luthiers and guitar techs because they make a benefit earning a reliable income with such repairs.
“It’s not fair” told Gibson spokesman to the media “that luthiers harvest all the fruits of our broken headstocks. They should share it with us!”
