The Legendary SG - Reinvented for 2013!

Made for today's versatile guitarist, Gibson's SG Standard with Min-ETune takes the traditional SG to a whole new level. A far cry from the original SG, whose thinner mahogany body, beveled edges, outlandishly pointed horns, and aggressive sound first caught the attention up-and-coming guitarists in the '60s, the SG Standard with Min-ETune brings automatic tuning to the masses. But don't let the high-tech gizmos distract you, the light mahogany body, slim neck, and PAF-style '57 Classic humbuckers in the SG Standard with Min-ETune still gives you 100% Gibson tone.

Gibson 2014 SG Standard with Min-ETune Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Tune faster and more accurately with the Min-ETune system
  • '57 Classic humbuckers deliver spot-on PAF tone
  • You just can't beat the feel of this slim SG neck
  • The next step of a legacy of time-tested rock tone
Tune faster and more accurately with the Min-ETune system

You'll find Gibson's innovative Min-ETune automatic tuning system on this 2014 SG Standard, which gives you ultra-precise tuning with just one strum on your strings. You've got instant access to 12 factory-preset tunings, with six additional slots to save your own favorites. The Min-ETune system uses a long-lasting lithium ion battery that gives you 80-100 tunings on a single charge. And because the Min-ETune system boasts 40:1 ratio tuners, the tuning accuracy on the SG Standard is second to none.

'57 Classic humbuckers deliver spot-on PAF tone

The pickups that Gibson gave their 2014 SG Standard electric guitars are as true to the sound of the original 1961 model as it gets. That's because Gibson originally engineered their '57 Classic humbuckers to capture the warmth, smooth playing dynamics, and overall character of their breakthrough PAFs. When you think of the slightly rude sound of classic rock, you're already imagining the tone you'll hear when you play your SG Standard through classic tube amp set to 11.

You just can't beat the feel of this slim SG neck

This Gibson SG Standard gives you the smooth feel and fast action of Gibson's SG slim profile neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications, eventually becoming the standard SlimTaper carve. This SG Standard takes the evolution of fast Gibson guitar neck carves one step farther, making this the fastest off-the-shelf SG ever designed. And when you add to that the ultra-smooth feel of its bound rosewood fingerboard, you get the best of both comfort and performance from the 2014 Gibson SG Standard.

The next step of a legacy of time-tested rock tone

It's hard to believe that in 1961, Gibson decided to discontinue the original Les Paul guitar. No one really knows why. In fact, the first SGs were actually going to be called Les Pauls, until Les Paul himself objected, so they just shortened Solid Guitar to SG and called it good. By the time Gibson started Les Pauls again, the SG was so popular that they simply kept making them. As it turned out, a lot of guitarists enjoyed the slightly ruder and more aggressive sound the SG Standard had to offer, and the decreased weight certainly didn't hurt. And when you pair this 2014 SG Standard with a classic high-gain tube amp, you'll experience first-hand the rush that inspired many of the hardest rockers of all time.
