Power. Tone. Versatility. And now, it tunes itself!
With the PowerTune System, this SG 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 the marketplace 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 less than 5 seconds. Major modification of the instrument is no longer required. A control knob that enables the tuning to be programmed replaces the volume control. The player 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 SG Special Faded 3-Pickup guitar offers all the performance of Gibson's legendary SG electric guitar line with the amazing PowerTune system at an unbeatable price. With three screaming 490 humbuckers”the same pickups offered on the top of the line Les Paul Supreme”the SG Special Faded 3 Pickup gives guitarists an unbelievable tonal spectrum to play with.
