A modern SG packed with Tony's signature pickups and appointments.
The original SG dates back to 1960 when it was first released as a replacement for the Les Paul Standard, which went out of production for most of the 1960s. The SG's smooth frets, lightweight body, distinctive "horns" and long scale made it a must-have for lead guitarists like Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, and young Tony Iommi from Birmingham, England.
The Ltd. Ed. Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom
The Ltd. Ed. Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom has a classic-styled SG body made from Mahogany with a gloss Ebony color finish and a 3-layer black/white/black pickguard. The 24.75" scale Mahogany neck has white binding and our popular 1960s SlimTaper D-profile that's glued into the body with a deep-set neck joint with a smooth transition heel.
Tony also introduced another first for his all-new signature SG, an Ebony fingerboard with pearloid "Cross" inlays designed by Tony with 24 medium jumbo frets, an adjustable truss rod, and a black graphite nut. The headstock features the famous Epiphone script logo in pearloid along with a 60s era "pineapple" inlay. On the back of the headstock is Tony's signature reproduced in silver silkscreen as well as an Epiphone Limited Edition logo in gold. The truss rod cover is bell-shaped like all classic SGs and Les Pauls.
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.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Tony Iommi SG Custom Electric Guitar:
Just received mine yesterday 11/3 ! This thing is sweet. The tone, even through my BOSS JS-10 trainer amp is absolutely phenomenal! Bottom end chunk and clarity on the Iommi pups were a treat for my ears. I'd never be able to afford to outfit my other guitars with these pickups ... at least for a while. The neck seems pretty fast... and those cross inlays!!!! The finish and all appointments were well done... no sloppy handiwork. Even the fret-wire was machined nicely and not sticking out the sides of the neck like you might expect on lower price guitars. About the only thing I am planning on doing is to take her to the tech, have it set up for e flat and have the nut re-cut fo10 gauge strings. I am completely happy with the quality Epi has put into this one. With all the bad reviews Gibson has been getting on the quality of their last two or three incarnations of the "real" SG, (especially with the addition of that stupid Min ETune in 2015) I find it hard to justify an investment between $1100.00 and upwards on a Gibby SG, at least right now. If your a fan of the "southpaw" and got the dime to spare for this one, definitely pick one up before they are gone. I'm glad I did!
