Tony Iommi is every guitar player's hero. He's not just the "lead guitarist" of Black Sabbath. He is Black Sabbath. Black Sabbath was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 but he's been every shredder's idol since Black Sabbath's debut in 1970. For 45 years as the band's heart and soul and the originator of dozens of all-time classic riffs, Tony Iommi has helped to make the "SG" the iconic guitar for Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. Now, Epiphone presents a one-of-a-kind SG designed exactly to Tony Iommi's specifications.
A classic guitar reinvented for the "Godfather of Heavy Metal", Epiphone is proud to introduce the Limited Edition Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom. Designed by Iommi himself, the Limited Edition Tony Iommi SG Custom comes loaded up with premium features that have been selected by the legendary guitarist including Gibson USA Tony Iommi Signature Humbuckers, a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with custom inlays, a sleek, sexy ebony gloss finish, and more!
The Epiphone Limited Edition Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom sports that time-tested double-horned mahogany body, and comes handsomely dressed with a gloss ebony finish and a 3-ply black/white/black pickguard. It features a glued-in, deep-set neck joint with a smooth transition heel for exceptional player comfort and easy access to the lead zone. Carved into Epiphone's popular 1960s SlimTaper D shape, the 24.75"-scale mahogany neck offers a classic SG feel while the ebony fingerboard carries medium jumbo frets, an adjustable truss rod, and a black graphite nut for superb playability and performance. The fingerboard also boasts white binding and pearloid "Cross" inlays that were designed by Iommi himself. The front of the headstock bears that legendary Epiphone script logo in pearloid along with an old-school "pineapple" inlay that's reminiscent of the '60s. The back of the headstock showcases a reproduction of Tony's signature in silver silkscreen and an Epiphone Limited Edition logo. A bell-shaped truss rod cover caters to the classic appeal.
At Tony's request, the Epiphone Limited Edition Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom comes fitted with a pair of his powerful Gibson USA Tony Iommi Signature Humbuckers. The first Signature Series pickups offered by Gibson, the Tony Iommi Signature Humbuckers utilize both Alnico II and Ceramic magnets that feature special windings to provide unparalleled sustain and shred-approved tone. The pickups are wired through a classic SG control layout, which consists of an all-metal 3-way pickup selector with a black toggle cap and 2 Volume/2 Tone controls with vintage-style Black "Top Hat" knobs.
The Epiphone Limited Edition Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom comes equipped with high-performance, rock-solid nickel hardware including a rim-mounted heavy-duty chrome metal jack plate, a set of premium die-cast tuners with a 14:1 ratio and metal tulip buttons, and a classic pairing of a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece for unmatched sustain, performance and reliability.
