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 œrobot 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.

Comments about Gibson 2014 SG Futura Electric Guitar:
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.
