Electric Guitar 2.0

Back in middle and high school, I used to play drums – acoustic ones.  I liked the look, sound and feel of them, and I loved the volume (my neighbors didn't).

There was a bit of a rivalry between drummers with acoustic kits and drummers with electric ones:  Everyone thought he had the best set.  Electric drums are more portable and more versatile, but many think acoustic drums are somehow more genuine.

That's why I'd like to hear what you think of the guitar featured on Thursday's show.  It has a microprocessor inside; it literally tunes itself (which looks really cool when the pegs start spinning).  But would you want that kind of guitar over a standard electric?  I mean, what do you think is better:  technology that lets you take 18 different tones on the road, or the old-fashioned idea, which requires more guitars but maybe gives more authenticity?
