Classic SG Styling, Next-gen Mods!

Sure, Gibson's SG Futura is descended from a classic solidbody electric, but for 2014, it's a new ballgame. Starting with its onboard Mini-ETune system, this guitar is packed with hot next-gen mods that'll up your game. With its sleek bevelled body and fast maple neck, playability is superb. But so is tone: Gibson spec'd this beast with P-90H Sidewinder (neck) and BurstBucker 3 (bridge) pickups, for a massive tone arsenal. Add to that coil splitting and a 15dB boost, and you're primed to rule stage and studio. Ready? Get your Gibson SG Futura from Sweetwater today!

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 Futura, 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 Futura is second to none.

Killer electronics to take your playing over the top

Want killer tone? The 2014 Gibson SG Futura is set up to deliver. In the neck position, Gibson has fitted their P-90H Sidewinder pickup. This non-stacked humbucker consists of two side-by-side coils turned on their sides. The sound is crisp and articulate at low gain settings, and gets delightfully gritty when you dig in or dime the volume pot. At the bridge, Gibson spec'd a BurstBucker 3, for tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs reminiscent of the original PAF humbuckers. The BurstBucker 3 is slightly overwound to give you hotter output, making it a perfect lead pickup and an ideal match with the P-90H. Amazing pickups, but there's more: you get push-pull volume pots that spilt the pickup coils, for spanky single-coil tones. And the kicker that makes this the ultimate lead guitar? A mini toggle lets you kick in a 15dB boost to take your solo over the top! Trust us, you'll love the electronics on the Gibson SG Futura.

Streamlined mahogany body and SG slim-profile neck feel amazing

The lightweight SG guitar style has been a hit for decades. The Gibson SG Futura's sleekly contoured, lightweight mahogany body fits you like a glove and makes the guitar incredibly comfortable, even for long playing sessions. The SG's iconic dual-horned cutaway gives you unobstructed access to the upper registers, while the slim-profile maple neck provides the easy action you need to pull off fast runs effortlessly. And while we're on the subject of soloing, it's noteworthy that the SG Futura is a 24-fret instrument, which makes it ideal for shredding across a broad range of musical styles.
