In honor of BLACK SABBATH’s final tour, “The End”, Epiphone pays tribute to the rock band’s founder Tony Iommi with an exclusive interview for Epiphone.com, where he discusses his life inside BLACK SABBATH and his new critically acclaimed limited-edition Tony Iommi signature SG custom.
Iommi has been every rock guitarists’ idol since SABBATH’s debut in 1970. For more than 45 years, Iommi has been the band’s heart and soul and the originator of dozens of all-time classic riffs. Iommi has helped to make the “SG” an iconic guitar for hard rock and heavy metal. The Epiphone limited-edition Tony Iommi signature SG custom was designed exactly to Tony Iommi’s specifications, and critics love it, too. Guitar World recently awarded this guitar its coveted gold award in its April 2016 issue, declaring, “Whether you’re a fan of Tony Iommi or the classic SG solidbody design, the Epiphone Tony Iommi signature SG custom offers the ultimate playing experience.”
“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.”
