Gibson Offers a Glimpse Forward with the SG Future Tribute!

Sure, the idea of a future dominated by robots is frightening, but would it be so bad if they just stuck to handling our more mundane tasks? Gibson answers this question with their SG Future Tribute Min-ETune -- a guitar that can tune its six strings to almost any pitch in just seconds.

Tune In to the Future

Players who need to quickly shift between various tunings on stage will love the functionality of the Min-ETune system on the SG Future Tribute. In seconds, the system automatically adjusts the tuning keys to the standard, drop, open, or custom tuning of your choice. All you do is select the tuning you want, strum all the strings at once to get close to the desired tuning, then play each string individually to fine tune and get in perfect pitch. The system is rechargeable and fits discreetly on the back of the headstock.

New Feel From a New Neck

Another area in which Gibson looked forward for the SG Future Tribute is its neck. The model has a mahogany neck carved in a '60s asymmetrical profile. This profile gives the neck more girth near the bottom strings and a thinner shape by the top strings, making for a comfortable lead or rhythm playing experience. The neck is topped with a 24-fret rosewood fretboard, allowing you to take full advantage of those signature SG double-horn cutaways for huge range.

Some Things Never Change

With as many updates as it boasts, the SG Future Tribute still incorporates many of the materials and design aesthetics that made its predecessors so popular. The flat top mahogany body remains lightweight, while still providing that distinct warm SG sound. The SG also uses the traditional Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece that have held players in tune for decades. The SG Future Tribute comes equipped with '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbucking pickups, for a sound steeped in Gibson tradition that can get plenty dirty when the need arises.

Features:

- Mahogany body
- Mahogany neck in '60s asymmetrical profile
- 24-fret rosewood fretboard
- '57 Classic Zebra Coil humbucker pickup (neck)
- '57 Classic Plus Zebra Coil humbucker pickup (bridge)
- Min-ETune automatic mechanical tuning system lets you tune in seconds
- Tune-O-Matic Bridge
- Premium gig bag included
