OVERVIEW

A classic joins the anniversary celebration with some significant upgrades.

The Gibson SG Standard 2014 Electric Guitar celebrates Gibson's 120th Anniversary in style. It has a mahogany body in a variety of colors with a slim, SG profile neck. The rosewood fingerboard has undercut frets over the binding for extra playing surface and sports a 120th Anniversary banner at the 12th fret. Other key features include 57 classic pickups with coil-splitting, max grip speed knobs, the Min-ETune system, Graph Tech nut and chrome tune-o-matic bridge. Includes hardshell 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 6 of your own.

FEATURES
  • Body: Mahogany
  • Neck: Mahogany, SG slim profile
  • Fingerboard: Undercut fret over binding bound rosewood with trapezoid inlays and 120th anniversary banner
  • Hardware: Min-ETune system , Chrome tune-o-matic,
  • Electronics: 57 classic pickups with coil splitting.
  • Plastics: Black graph tech nut, small pick guard
  • Case: Vintage brown hardshell
Special 120th Anniversary features
  • Banner inlay on all instruments at the 12th fret
  • Max grip speed knobs
  • New extra large strap button
  • Undercut fret over binding on all bound guitars
  • Cleartone coated strings
  • Graph Tech nut
  • Cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance

You'll have a reason to celebrate when you open its box. Order today.

This is by far the best SG yet. Perfect finish, perfect neck and fretboard, perfect tone (and many choices), electronic tuning is spot on and fast, action is superb. I have owned several SGs and the 2014 is the best - really! It successfully competes with my Gibson Les Paul Custom that cost over twice as much. The split coils provides for Tele and Strat tones when desired. This guitar is a 10 of 10. And the price is right.

This is a guitar that sounds very good and is an iconic model from an iconic brand. Really, it comes down to that, if you are happy to pay the premium for the iconic axe, go for it.

This is a basic guitar. Nothing fancy. Very light weight. I like the alpine white model but as far a finishes, build quality, and feel it's ok but nothing exceptional. Where this guitar stands out is the tone. It is a sweet sounding guitar and I think it really excels at hard rock, classic rock and blues. But, I think it could handle anything. The overall quality is good.

There are better guitars at this price point. Gibson's prices keep rising faster and higher and this model no exception. You are paying a premium for the name but the quality I expect at this price is not there.

Again, it's a good guitar it's just overpriced. So, if you want this iconic guitar, keep an eye out for Stupid deal of the day, end of year close outs, re stocks, and used. I've had great luck with all of the above from MF and come the holiday season this guitar will likely pop up at a good price. Last year I scored 25% off on a brand new Gibson Les Paul Standard as one of MFs end of year "door busters" . I saw SG standards at great prices so keep cool and keep your eyes open for deals. Just know, when these deals pop up the guitars move fast so be ready to buy.

Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

I have read all the reviews. for all you out there that think the etune does not work well here's the skinny. out of the box I adjusted the action to my liking. the stretched the strings out real well. the secret is then to get Big bends nut sauce and apply to each string nut grove, then watch how it works. flawlessly. sounds great and plays great. do this and see what happens. Got mine for 1400 new.

Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

the guitar is solid Gibson that will stay in tune...however the etune had to go ...if I had one string out a little after I would use it three would be off slightly...it seemed lost no mater what I would do with the settings...I tried for 5 months before I failed it...its not me..it would go sharp the then flat...a tuner needs to stop sampling after first second of strike and adjust accordingly..it keeps sampling and it is normal to wonder off pitch slightly as the vibration fades out...autos need to be smarter

      Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

      These SG's have rose a lot in price lately since the pickguard has changed. Personaly I like the big pickguard better.The batwing guard doesn't belong on the standard! Just a way for gibson to raise the price and they DID! Way over priced now but it is a gibson!

      Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

      The 1st few days I had this guitar it would not stay in tune and sounded very muddy. I was ready to send it back. 1st I took it to my local guitar tech who set it up and fine tuned it. I also put a Gibson Angus Young pickup in the bridge position even though the 57 classics are good as well. The first day back from the shop it still sounded muddy and wouldn't stay in tune, whether using the built in min e tune system or a clip on tuner. The next day I gave it one more shot and when I played it not only was it now staying in tune, but sounded much better. My only explanation is that this guitar is a very highly sensitive high end instrument and it needed a few days to "air out" and acclimate out of the box and some fine tuning/set up work by my local guitar tech

      Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

      Guitar is everything you would expect from a Gibson. Tuner works like it should but menu select is hard to see direction buttons unless you take guitar and place back of head directly in front of you. Difficult to see, should be marked better.

        Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is amazing. As much as everybody is hating on the min E tune, i love it. originally i was against it but after trying it, I realized how useful it is. It sounds amazing and has a variety of pickup options with the coil split. the undercut fret over binding surprisingly makes a noticeable difference in playing. And the vintage style case is really cool. It is slightly neck heavy, but that is to be expected with an SG. altogether this is an awesome guitar and definitely the best one i own.

          This is as good as any SG that I have ever owned, I am still getting used to the auto tune but it is great and the price very reasonable. I love the Walnut color as well.
