Product Description

The Gibson M-III Electric Guitar captures the head-turning looks, ultra-fast feel and searing tone of the original that was introduced in 1991! Gibson USA crafts this axe with a solid mahogany body, glued-in neck, and high-gain Dirty Fingers humbuckers with versatile switching, just like the original. The 25.5 inch scale length yields piano-like lows and brilliant highs, while the ultra-stable Floyd Rose trem allows for everything from radical dive-bombing to evocative vibrato.

The maple neck’s fast profile, super action, and easy access right to the top of the 24-fret fingerboard give the M-III guitar perhaps the fastest feel on any Gibson. The striking arrow-head inlays provide an eye-catching contrast to the explosive range of finishes, all in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. The M-III’s all-black hardware complements the stunning visuals. Crank out the shred Gibson style with the M-III!

Gibson M-III Electric Guitar Features

  • Solid Mahogany body with radical double-pointed styling
  • Maple neck with fast, slim profile
  • Maple fingerboard with arrow-head inlays
  • Dirty Fingers+ humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions
  • Single coil pickup in the middle position
  • Floyd Rose vibrato tailpiece
  • Grover Mini-Kidney tuners
  • Comes protected in a plush-lined Gibson USA hardshell case with black exterior
Body and Neck
A solid mahogany body yields superb depth, richness and resonance while a glued-in maple neck adds clarity and snap to the tone. The Grade-A maple fingerboard has a 25.5 inch scale length, a compound radius for easy chording and smooth bending, and 24 jumbo frets, all within easy reach thanks to the M-III’s radical asymmetrical, double-pointed body styling. A fast, slim profile and contrasting black arrowhead inlays declare the M-III a shredder’s dream.

Pickups and Electronics
Gibson USA packs the M-III with a trio of its most powerful pickups, including Dirty Fingers+ humbuckers in the neck and bridge position, and a Dirty Fingers+ single coil in the middle. A five-way switch, combined with push-pull switching on the master tone control for humbucker coil-splitting, take you everywhere from warm, vocal neck pickup tones, to roaring crunch and soaring leads in the bridge, to bright, shimmering single-coil tones.

Hardware
A high-quality Floyd Rose vibrato with locking nut adds further versatility to your playing arsenal, while a set of genuine Grover Mini-Kidney tuners enhance the already unparalleled tuning stability. All hardware is black-plated, and the control knobs are easy-grip knurled black metal. The M-III carries a traditional black bell-shaped truss-rod cover, and wears no pickguard to obscure its dramatic range of finish options.

Monster guitar!!!!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I'd always liked the shape (EPI Prophecy), but always found another guitar to suit me. This time I discovered that Gibby was re-issuing the shape and gave it some thought. After some research I couldn't pass it up this time. WOW!!! What a guitar this is; just perfect for every need I have, be it shred or clean playing. I'm highly impressed Gibson...excellent job!
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Right from the box, it's perfect. The set-up was great, except for minor tunings due to weather (it was 9 degrees when she shipped). I let her sit overnight, then gave her the once-over today; just an amazing axe. It covers all the bases for any sound be it clean or shred. The Dirty Fingers pups are versatile and capable of whatever sound you need; the split options give you a vast array of tones that are amazing be it clean or nasty.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Surprisingly light; I expected it to be light but it was lighter than I expected. Very comfortable to play standing or sitting. The neck is amazing; very responsive and the controls are within reach for easy switching.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
This guitar covers all the bases for tone; cleans are awesome and the dirt is there for days if needed. The maple board is snappy and responsive; a treat for all maple lovers and a nice surprise for newcomers. The pups cover all the requirements for a variety of tones. The coil-tap gives infinite tonal options.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish was amazing. I chose Orange Glow as something different, and it just screams. You can see wood grain patterns under the nitro finish; beautiful. Pictures do NOT do this axe justice...just a beauty.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I am totally satisfied with the quality and price. I now have a USA Gibson that I love and will abuse for years to come...just an amazing guitar.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Due to the weather, I let mine sit for 24 hours to acclimate (it was 9 degrees when she arrived). After acclimating, she was perfect once fine-tuned. Awesome axe Gibby; thank you \m/
