M-III concept was first introduced back in 1991 and it marked the turning point in Gibson`s approach to the Superstrat/Soloist section of the electric guitar market. It was Gibson`s first model with complete focus on the shred players. Some experts argue that it came a bit late, when alternative rock, grunge and indie started taking over. Indeed, M-III was a bit late, but today, some 20 years later, it is coming back to life to reclaim Gibson`s position on the shred scene. Gibson has equipped this six-string warrior with all up-to-date appointments, top-shelf materials and hardware. M-III is available in modern, youthful and vibrant color options. Cobalt Blue, Vibrant Red, Electric Lime and Orange Glow are all finished in nitrocellulose gloss and have black hardware. Solid and flat body is double-cut and made of mahogany. It features set in neck joint and asymmetrical cutaway horns. On the top, Gibson makes sure that even the most demanding of players get completely satisfied. An original Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo bridge is in command. It`s black and as six adjustable saddles. Dirty Fingers + pickups are installed in front of it. Two humbuckers (bridge and neck positions) and a single-coil pickup in the middle comprise the pickups combo. They`re strong, versatile and can take the player wherever he wants to go. Master volume, master tone and a five-position blade switch comprise the controls unit. Master tone knob is equipped with a push-pull switch, which splits the humbucking pickups into single-coils for even more options. M-III features full-length 25-1/2" scale and compound radius neck, as well. Instead of the traditional mahogany, Gibson uses maple on this model. Neck is set in and it`s fit with a slim and fast contour in the back. The design of the neck joint and the body cutaway allow the player an easy access to the top frets. Fingerboard on the neck is made of maple and it`s equipped with a set of 24 jumbo-sized frets. Arrowhead inlays complete the fingerboard specs. Reversed hockey stick headstock features six Mini Kidney Grover tuners installed in a line. They`re plated in black and in cooperation with the Floyd Rose tremolo bridge, keep the tuning and intonation of this gorgeous shredder spot on. The MSRP for M-III (all four color schemes) is set at $2,082.
