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.

    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.

        Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

        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.

        Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

        The tuner works only half the time properly, the proper tune is based on the first instant you strike the string but this thing evaluates the note 3 seconds later. It ends up sharp or flat a little. There may be an answer. Jury is still out.
