The SG Futura is crafted in the image of the original SG Standard, with an asymmetrical double-cutaway body for excellent upper-fret access. It’s made from solid mahogany, with a glued-in maple neck sporting a slim ’60s profile. The rosewood fingerboard is topped with a black GraphTech nut, and carries 24 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with dot inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.The guitar carries a versatile pair of pickups, including a BurstBucker 3 in the bridge position and a P-90H Sidewinder Humbucker in the neck position. These pickups are built with the power to rock, excelling in heavy crunch and wailing lead tones, yet they clean up beautifully for mellower moments, adapting themselves to your every need. They’re wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls with a three-way selector switch, then add push/pull coil-split switching and an onboard 15 dB boost with mini-toggle switching.The SG Futura is stage-ready for the 21st century thanks to its factory-installed Min-ETune tuning system, which automatically retunes your guitar on demand in seconds, or calls up any one of 12 factory or 6 user presets at a simple strum of the strings. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. New Max Grip black speed knobs are joined by a black pickguard and black truss-rod cover.The SG Futura comes protected in a Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.Order your Gibson 2014 SG Futura Electric Guitar today from Sam Ash Direct with the security of our 45/60 day return/price protection policy and our fast, free shipping.
