Retro Style with Next-gen Mods!

On the retro side, the 2013 Gibson SG Tribute Future starts off with a traditional 24-fret fingerboard, a lightweight mahogany body, and a set of '57 Classic pickups that give you timeless PAF humbucker tone. But that's where SG convention breaks off. For instance, the SG Tribute Future's bridge pickup is actually a '57 Classic Plus, which provides you with a much spicier, hot-rodded humbucker sound that's more suitable for modern aggressive playing styles. An asymmetrical '60s neck carve also bridges the gap between traditional high-speed slimness and modern versatility. And wait till you get a load of these funky 40:1 Steinberger Gearless Tuners. Are you ready for something different? Get your Gibson SG Tribute Future from Sweetwater!

A futuristic guitar with an nod to the history of the SG

Pick up an SG Tribute Future, and you've got over 50 years of pure rock history in your hands. When Gibson discontinued the Les Paul in 1961 the SG hit the market as the next big thing, and for over half a decade, this uncontested solidbody guitar evolved into one of the cornerstones of rock music. Although the Les Paul more than made a comeback in 1968, the SG had already established itself as the guitar to have for the new wave of aggressive playing styles, and it's continued to grow and adapt to meet the demands of guitarists like you. The 2013 Gibson SG Tribute Future gives you a glimpse of what the future has to hold for this magnificent instrument.

Punchy 57 Classic pickups gives this axe a modern take on PAF tone

Two of Gibson's best-loved humbuckers - a '57 Classic in the neck position, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge - gives the SG Tribute Future the power, punch the sound of a tastefully tweaked vintage electric guitar. That's because Gibson engineered their 57 Classic pickups to recreate the overall sound of the original PAF humbuckers. But it gets even better. That '57 Classic Plus at the bridge has been turbocharged to give you greater definition and hotter output, making the SG Tribute Future a killer axe for modern hard rock and metal.

Steinberger Gearless Tuners give you freakishly stable tuning

Typical tuners feature gear ratios of anywhere from 12:1 on budget instruments to 22:1 on high-end models. That ratio has a lot to do with how stable your tuning is and how much control you have over your tuning accuracy. The Gibson SG Tribute Future blows conventional tuning stability out the window, thanks to a set of Steinberger Gearless Tuners, whose equivalent ratio is a whopping 40:1. With this kind of tuning control, you'll never run into issues when you go into alternate tunings. So go ahead, get creative with your Gibson SG Tribute Future solidbody electric guitar.

Gibson SG Tribute Future Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • An innovative solidbody electric guitar that gives you classic tone, hot-rod output, and epic stability
  • '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbucking pickups deliver PAF tone with extra-hot output
