Joystick thingy on back of Gibson Flying V

Hi all,

My new Gibson Flying V HP guitar arrived yesterday and I lover her. I found a weird joystick like thingy on the back of the guitar head and cannot figure out how the heck to use it let alone what it does! Nothing is covered about this in the Gibson owner manual either. Here is a photo of the device.

How do I use it?

Thanks,
Ben

Start by pressing the little button in the middle on the left....that should power it up if the battery is charged. Then slowly strum until the guitar is in tune. The look up GForce tuners on google and youtube and you should get whatever info you need.

It is a growth! Have it removed immediately!

My son bought a guitar with it fitted and I'm sure it came with instructions or at least a link to the Gibson site.

BTW he loves it and even bought one to be fitted to his 1999 LP.

Mine came with instructions. However, setting the intonation was not covered, and proved to be such a task that I replaced the thing with a set of Grovers. No instruction needed with those.
