Product Description

Ready to rock and remarkably affordable, the Gibson SGM Min-ETune Electric Guitar delivers contemporary SG Standard-style tone and playability—and much more—at an unprecedented price. To celebrate the 120th Anniversary of the world’s most respected guitar maker, Gibson USA has unveiled an entire new lineup that represents several of the greatest values ever offered in hand-made American electric guitars. The SGM is a prime example: backed by a wealth of innovation and experience, it’s a genuine Gibson at every turn, at a lower price than you ever thought possible.

Between its genuine Gibson humbucking pickups, classic tonewoods, a fast and comfortable neck profile, and uncompromising Gibson construction quality, the SGM nails every expectation from a great Gibson electric guitar. Add in Gibson's Min-ETune automated tuning system and a raft of innovative new features for 2014, finish it in your choice of Satin Cherry, Satin Chocolate, Rubbed Vintage Burst Satin, Vintage Sunburst Satin, or Fireburst Satin, and the new SGM looks as great as it feels and sounds.

Legendary Tone, Cutting-Edge Features, Unbeatable Value
The raw and ready SGM derives its timeless Les Paul-style tone from Gibson’s new ’61 Zebra humbucking pickups, crafted in the image of the hallowed original PAF humbuckers, but updated for the power and versatility required by today’s music. Further 2014 120th Anniversary additions include new larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a TekToid nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret. Put it all together with the legendary Gibson playability, and the new SGM is ready to rock, at a truly breathtaking price.

Body and Neck
The SGM 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 with a ‘50s profile. The rosewood fingerboard is topped with a TekToid 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.

Pickups and Electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s new ’61 Zebra humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge 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, and a three-way selector switch.

The SGM’s heart is 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 satin 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 provide optimum on-the-fly control. Following the LPM’s stripped-down ethos, the guitar carries no pickguard.

Case and Coverage
The SGM comes protected in a Gibson gig bag, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.

Overall Rating
Wow...really sounds awesome!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Gibson nailed this one with a pure tone machine. The neck is smooth and sculpted for super fast transitions The soft satin nitro cellulose finish really let's this baby resonate rich overtones The Zebra pick ups are articulate with lots of attitude
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Perfect out of the box. Really put together ready to play....
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is so smooth and contoured for fast and confident playing The speed knobs are a easy to reach and when playing out I don't even need to look down to change volume or tone balance. The e tune is crazy fast and accurate....I can change timings in a few seconds without touching the tuners or needing to fiddle around on stage with my floor pedal tuner.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Pure Gibson SG tone without being brash or too bright. Powerful enough to really hear those muted bass lines kick that deep percussive accents Sounds great clean as well as distorted
How did the stain or paint job look?
Beautiful thin nitro finish that let's the guitar breath and resonate
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Super price for a SG that sounds like a million
How was the action out of the box?
