Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Launches Limited-Edition Guitar

(hennemusic) Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath has officially launched a limited-edition signature guitar with instrument maker Epiphone. The new Ltd. Ed. Tony Iommi Signature SG Custom was designed by the guitarist.

"This guitar sounds like I want it to sound on stage," says 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."

The classic-styled SG body is made from Mahogany and the model features a 24-fret Ebony fingerboard - with pearloid "Cross" inlays designed by Iommi - and an Ebony gloss color finish.

The back of the headstock presents Iommi's signature reproduced in silver silkscreen as well as an Epiphone Limited Edition logo in gold. Watch the official interview and promo video here.
