Revolutionary Then, Righteously Radical Now
When Gibson introduced the M-III in 1991 it totally embodied the “shred” guitar, marrying Gibson’s thundering power that had already ruled the rock world for nearly four decades with the scale length, speed, and ultra-pointy styling that appealed to the world’s fastest players.
The new M-III from Gibson USA captures the magic of the original guitar’s playability, power, and visual appeal, thanks to Gibson’s renowned and exacting standards of workmanship and finish.
Just like the first M-IIIs, the new M-III starts from a foundation of Gibson tradition—seen in its solid mahogany body, glued-in neck, and high-gain Dirty Fingers™ humbucking pickups with versatile switching—and catapults it into the future with a major dose of style and innovation.
The 25 ½” scale length enables piano-like lows and shimmering highs, while a Floyd Rose™ trem facilitates everything from radical dive-bombing to evocative vibrato, all with unparalleled tuning stability.
To top it off, the neck’s fast profile, super action, and easy access right to the top of the 24-fret fingerboard help the M-III offer a playing experienced equaled by none.
The M-III’s scorching looks match its incendiary performance. The natural maple fingerboard with striking arrow-head inlays provides an eye-catching contrast to the explosive range of finishes on the guitar—from your choice of Cosmic Cobalt, Electric Lime, Vibrant Red, or Orange Glow—all in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.
The all-black hardware complements the stunning visuals, and reminds you that the M-III is here to rock.
Feel the heat at your authorized Gibson USA dealer, and crank out the shred like never before.
