The Futura joins the anniversary celebration with some significant upgrades including the Min-ETune system.

The Gibson 2014 SG Futura Electric Guitar celebrates Gibson's 120th Anniversary in style. It has a solid mahogany body and a maple neck with a '60s slim profile. The 24-fret rosewood fingerboard has trapezoid inlays and sports a 120th Anniversary banner at the 12th fret.

Electronics include the P-90H Sidewinder and BB3 with Push/Pull for coil split and mini toggle for 15dB boost. This SG Futura benefits from the full array anniversary bonuses including max grip speed knobs, a Graph Tech nut and chrome tune-o-matic bridge. It also comes with Gibson's Min-ETune tuning machines and a case.

Min-ETune automated “robot” tuners
Min-ETune is a small compact battery powered tuning unit that sits on the back of the guitar — a mighty enhancement to an already great instrument. No need for screws, wiring or routing, in fact the system is hardly visible from the front of the guitar. You can still adjust the tuning pegs manually or turn on the Min-ETune to choose from 12 popular tunings or program six of your own.

  • Great sound and feel with one execption

    As reviewed by Adam Carignan on 12/31/2013

    Wow, the build quality is really good one this guitar. Split coil push/pull knobs and the toggle boost make this guitar's sound so versatile I contemplate getting rid of a few of my own. The sound is exceptional. The paint job is also quite brilliant as well (inverse green vintage gloss). It is not a smooth finish, you can see the indents of the grain of the wood through the paint job and the paint is almost metallic. It just looks so great. I would give this 5 stars but the robot tuners are not that great, dare I say kind of crappy. I wonder why they'd even put them in. They work but only after numerous attempts and don't leave the guitar perfectly in tune. They feel gimmicky and cheap and as though I'd do a better job by ear. You can adjust the tuning keys with the need for the robot part but they somehow feel flimsy, as though you may strip the gears inside the tuner. I would much rather have a good set of Gotoh tuners in this rather than the robot tuners. With that being said I would definitely suggest buying this with all the other features, versatility and beauty this guitar has to offer but also invest in a good set of better tuners to put in as well.

  • Cool but eh..

    As reviewed by Alexander on 8/20/2014

    Got one of these a few months ago and thought it was going to be perfect for me. 24 frets, E-tune, etc. It played well and looked pretty cool though I ordered the Champagne Vintage Gloss thinking it was going to be some sort of Silverburst as that's what the pictures indicate but it was really just a pale silver overall (no darker edges). Pickups sounded pretty good, the Sidewinder in the neck was decent. Unfortunately the one thing I was most excited for is what turned me off from the guitar and that was the e-Tune system. While it worked pretty damn well and was cool for switching between random tunings, when I would have it tune to standard E, it was a bit off from all the Boss TU-3 tuners my band uses. I could go in and tweak the settings to come close but didn't really want to have to do that. Was more work and was more of a toy than I guess I really wanted. Ended up bringing it in and trading it in for something else. Neat guitar, just wasn't for me. The new guitar in the case smelled weird too.

  • Poor Gibson quality and service

    As reviewed by DAVID JOHNSON on 4/23/2014

    I ordered my plum insane SG Futura from Guitar center and against my better judgement, I accepted delivery of it. The electronics are cool but the fit and finish suck. The bridge pickup is cockeyed and the guitar has major fret buzz. The guitar should have been a blemished. The fret board appears and feels uneven. Now to the sound. I like the p90, it has great clean sound. The bridge pickup is ok at best but I suspect it is more my guitar seeming to be a lemon. I kind of like the Min-e Tune system but it is kind of quirky. Tuning your low strings is backwards and the tuners feel cheap. I called Gibson to discuss the quality and they didn't care. Guess this bad boy goes in for repairs or a refund tomorrow.
