Designed by Rock Royalty
The Epiphone Ltd Ed Tony Iommi SG Custom Electric Guitar, Ebony is a killer limited edition custom SG designed by the "Godfather of Heavy Metal" himself: Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi. Every shredder's idol since Black Sabbath's debut in 1970, Tony Iommi has helped to make the "SG" the iconic guitar for Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, with dozens of all-time classic riffs.
"This guitar sounds like I want it to sound on stage," said Iommi. "I play it at home in the studio as well. It uses my signature pickups, which we worked on for quite a while over the years. It's got a great fretboard with a really nice feel. And, it's just a really classy looking guitar."
Based on a Legend
The original SG was first released in 1960 as a replacement for the Les Paul Standard. The SG's smooth frets, lightweight body, distinctive "horns" and long scale made it a must-have for lead guitarists like Pete Townshend (The Who), Eric Clapton, and Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath). This limited edition model also features an Ebony fingerboard with pearloid "Cross" inlays designed by Tony with 24 medium-jumbo frets, an adjustable truss rod, and a black graphite nut. Each Epiphone Limited Edition Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom comes with a hand signed certificate of authenticity, binder and photograph.
Gibson USA Tony Iommi Signature Humbuckers
For his new Ltd. Ed. signature Epiphone, the "Godfather of Heavy Metal" chose his own Gibson USA Tony Iommi Signature Humbuckers for both the lead and rhythm positions. The Tony Iommi Signature Humbucker was Gibson?s first Signature Series pickup and features both Alnico II and Ceramic magnets with special windings for an incredible sustain and full-shred tone. Each pickup is fully wax-potted and epoxied for absolute protection against unwanted feedback. Both pickups are powered by SG-style controls with Black ?Top Hat? knobs with metal inserts and an Epiphone all-metal 3-way pickup selector with a black toggle cap.
Rock Solid Hardware
As with all Epiphones, the Ltd. Ed. Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom comes with rock solid nickel hardware including a rim-mounted Epiphone Heavy-Duty chrome metal jack plate, premium die-cast machine heads with a 14:1 ratio and Metal Tulip Buttons, and a classic LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge Stopbar tailpiece for incredible sustain and reliability.
