Spice Up Your Sound With a Pair of BurstBucker 3 and P-90H Sidewinder HumbuckersAt the SG Futura's bridge you have a classic BurstBucker 3 humbucker -- a PAF-sounding pickup slightly overwound for a hotter signal. Perfect for a cutting lead tone, the BurstBucker 3 is accompanied by Gibson's new P-90H Sidewinder at the neck. This baby is fitted with two side-by-side coils that are rotated onto their sides to dish out a range from well-defined low-gain tones to a hotter, grittier tinge when you crank up your signal. Also, combined with a standard three-setting pickup selector switch are the extremely versatile push-pull volume knobs for coil-splitting. This feature will give you an even wider spectrum of sonic possibilities for these two fantastic humbuckers.
Classic Look With a Great FeelThe Gibson 2014 SG Futura Min-ETune sports the classic SG asymmetrical double-cutaway body, showing off a time-honored look while providing comfortable higher fret accessibility. The body is solid mahogany and the glued-in maple neck is crafted in Gibson's slim taper '60s profile -- providing tight action and comfortable fingering for this baby's wide span of 24 frets. If you're looking for a great guitar for lead playing, the double-cutaway body is excellent for reaching those higher frets. And, with the 120th Anniversary inlay in the 12th fret, chrome Tune-o-Matic bridge and stop bar, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, full PLEK setup, and enlarged guitar strap buttons for greater strap security, you'll be rocking in visual and sonic style -- in ease and comfort -- with this 2014 celebratory release.
Automated Min-ETune Tuning System and +15 dB BoostIf all of that isn't enough, the 2014 SG Futura comes with the battery powered Min-ETune tuning system for 80 to 100 accurate tunings on a single battery. This automated tuning system comes with 12 factory preset tunings and a memory of up to six additional slots if you want to save your own tunings. A final electronic mod for the SG Futura Min-ETune is a 15 dB battery-powered switch if you need an extra kick of decibels to tear through the air.

Gibson 2014 SG Futura Min-ETuneAs one of several models for Gibson's 120th Anniversary celebrations, the SG Futura 2014 combines an unprecedented set of features with truly incredible value. Backed by legendary tone and launched into the 21st century by some of Gibson's most stunning innovations yet, this is a guitar primed to rock your world -- and do it in style.
The SG Futura 2014 begins with a foundation of traditional tonewoods, kicks it up a notch with the pairing of an overwound-PAF-style BurstBucker 3 humbucker in the bridge position and Gibson's P-90H Sidewinder humbucker in the neck, then takes it all to the next level with push/pull coil-split switching and an onboard 15 dB boost. Add the astounding Min-ETune automated tuning system and a whole raft of 120th Anniversary features, and this is a stunning performance package at any price.
Innovative 120th Anniversary additions for 2014 include larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a black GraphTech nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret.
Body and NeckThe SG Futura is crafted in the image of the original SG Standard, with an asymmetrical double-cutaway body for excellent upper-fret access. It's made from solid mahogany, with a glued-in maple neck sporting a slim '60s profile. The rosewood fingerboard is topped with a black GraphTech nut, and carries 24 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with dot inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and ElectronicsThe guitar carries a versatile pair of pickups, including a BurstBucker 3 in the bridge position and a P-90H Sidewinder Humbucker in the neck position. These pickups are built with the power to rock, excelling in heavy crunch and wailing lead tones, yet they clean up beautifully for mellower moments, adapting themselves to your every need. They're wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls with a three-way selector switch, then add push/pull coil-split switching and an onboard 15 dB boost with mini-toggle switching.
HardwareThe SG Futura is stage-ready for the 21st century thanks to its factory-installed Min-ETune tuning system, which automatically tunes your guitar on demand in seconds, or calls up any one of 12 factory or 6 user presets at a simple strum of the strings. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Max Grip black speed knobs are joined by a black pickguard and black truss-rod cover.
Case and CoverageThe SG Futura comes protected in a Gibson case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
