Min-ETune is a small compact battery powered tuning system that is hardly visible from the front of the guitar and allows you to choose from 12 popular tunings or program 6 of your own! Perfect for home, studio and gigging - it even adjusts your guitar's tunings to match other instruments' with the reference tuning feature. All you have to do is PUSH the button, STRUM, get TUNED and ROCK out.
Digital tuners that emulate open tunings are available, but because the Min-ETune physically turns the tuners, the system is always natural. There is no delay, no dampening and no dead sound - just the natural vibration of guitar strings in total harmony with the amp producing ringing harmonics and powerful sustain. Go from a pop songs in E Standard, grunge song in Drop D, an alt metal song in D Standard, and a blues song in open G quickly and all with one guitar!
Body and Finish
A solid mahogany body with beveled edges for added comfort and that distinctive and dangerous dual-horned double-cutaway design are hallmarks of the legendary SG Standard. The guitar’s select mahogany components ring with all the depth and richness you’d expect from a classic tonewood, and look great in your choice of nitrocellulose finish in Heritage Cherry or Ebony Black.
Neck, Headstock and Fingerboard
The SG Standard is crafted in classic Gibson style with a glued-in long-tenon neck made from solid quarter-sawn mahogany and topped with a rosewood fingerboard. It has an angled headstock for superior resonance, and its rounded mid-’60s profile and 1-11/16 inch wide Corian nut help to make is supremely playable.
Pickups and Electronics
The SG Standard carries two of Gibson’s most popular humbucking pickups, a 498T in the bridge position and a 490R in the neck. Both are designed as updated renditions of Gibson’s famous PAF humbucker of the late ’50s and early ’60s, modified for improved versatility, and routed through the classic Gibson four-knob and three-way switch control section.
The hardware set on the SG Standard echoes that worn by SG Standards since the 1960s, and includes Gibson’s hallowed Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, and vintage-style tuners. A classic of 20th century guitar design, the Tune-o-matic provides excellent resonant coupling, while offering efficient independent adjustment of each saddle for precise intonation.
Sum it all up, and it’s a guitar of unrivaled versatility and stunning looks – and a rock beast to be reckoned with. All this, and your SG Standard comes protected in a formfitting Gibson hardshell case, and is covered by Gibson’s famous Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service. It could just be the bargain of the decade… or the past four. Check one out now at your authorized Gibson dealer.
