EverTune bridge keeps your guitar in tune

Want your guitar to stay in tune, but can't afford a Gibson Robot Les Paul? EverTune has a product in the works that will help. It won't help you switch tunings, or tune the guitar for you like Gibson's effort, but once you've tuned a guitar with an EverTune bridge, it apparently stays tuned forever.

There's nothing digital on board, just "simple mechanical principles". As your strings or tuning posts loosen, an adaptive spring-tensioner compensates, and keeps tension locked exactly to where you set it. This means it supports any non-standard tuning you desire.

EverTune is in talks with guitar manufacturers to include its bridges on new guitars, and will also be available in kit form to retrofit to your favorite axe. Interested parties can sign up for updates at evertune.com/contact.

I came up with exactly this idea many years ago. The spring size looks to be the same as I used. I made a unit and fixed it to a guitar which belonged to my now ex-wife. Unfortunately she sold the guitar and I did not remove the bridge. Who knows, maybe the current inventor could have bought the guitar and realised what he had. Let this be a lesson to inventors. Do something with your invention before someone else does! Damn!
