Vintage SG punch - and now it tunes itself!
With the PowerTune System, this Gibson SG Electric Guitar can tune itself precisely and automatically within seconds. It stores personal tuning preferences and makes them available for easy implementation at the push of a button.
The PowerTune System brings a real innovation to you that promises to banish, once and for all, the tuning problems guitarists and bass players often have. The system consists of 3 components that can automatically tune all strings according to prescribed settings in fewer than 5 seconds. Major modification of the instrument is no longer required. A control knob that enables programmed tuning replaces the volume control. You can choose from normal tuning patterns right up to the most diverse range of open tunings. The programmed instructions are implemented by tuners equipped with tiny electric motors. As the motorized tuners adjust the tuning, the pitch of the string is monitored by means of the tune-control bridge. Electrical power for the tuning mechanism is supplied via the guitar strings.
The Gibson SG Special Electric Guitar is enhanced by the amazing PowerTune system. The SG Special has a body made from multipiece mahogany with a one-piece SG-style neck. This Gibson Guitar features a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, 2 humbucker pickups with 2 volume and 2 tone controls, 3-way pickup selector, and a stopbar with Tune-O-Matic bridge. Gibson includes a deluxe gig bag with the SG Special guitar.
