The Futura joins the anniversary celebration with some significant upgrades including the Min-ETune system.
The Gibson 2014 SG Futura Electric Guitar celebrates Gibson's 120th Anniversary in style. It has a solid mahogany body and a maple neck with a '60s slim profile. The 24-fret rosewood fingerboard has trapezoid inlays and sports a 120th Anniversary banner at the 12th fret.
Electronics include the P-90H Sidewinder and BB3 with Push/Pull for coil split and mini toggle for 15dB boost. This SG Futura benefits from the full array anniversary bonuses including max grip speed knobs, a Graph Tech nut and chrome tune-o-matic bridge. It also comes with Gibson's Min-ETune tuning machines and a case.
Min-ETune automated “robot” tuners
Min-ETune is a small compact battery powered tuning unit that sits on the back of the guitar — a mighty enhancement to an already great instrument. No need for screws, wiring or routing, in fact the system is hardly visible from the front of the guitar. You can still adjust the tuning pegs manually or turn on the Min-ETune to choose from 12 popular tunings or program six of your own.
You'll have a reason to celebrate when you open its box. Order today.

Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Futura Electric Guitar:
I was always wanting an SG Standard, and saw this model as it was released. I loved the idea of the neck pickup and bought the red model (which looks amazing) and have no regrets. It is solid and the quality is evident.
I cannot be happier with this guitar! It looks great; it sounds great; it has tons of tone options.
I was skeptical about the db switch --- and it may seem like a gimmick, but on top of the volume boost, the tone changes too.
The only thing I could do without is the min-etune --- this should be an option. It does what it says, but it tunes the g and lower e strings a tad bit sharp. I have no problem manually tuning my guitars and this technology is nice, but not necessary.
If you are considering this guitar, get it! It is fun, sounds great, and it is quality built.
