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!

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.
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.
