Overview

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 Tony Iommi SG Limited Edition:

This is not a $4,000 Jaydee Custom Guitar but this is a high quality guitar with design specs issued from the Iron Man himself, Tony Iommi.

As with any production guitar, design decisions have to be made to fit within a consumer price point. The price point settled on here was $800 and the specs and finished product result in a great guitar.

It's worth noting up front that this does not feel in any way like a $300 Epiphone with a couple of minor upgrades.

To compare and contrast this guitar with my two other Gibson USA SG's:
- The EPI is solid, slightly heavier than my Gibson SG's. The paint and craftsmanship are flawless which was really surprising to me. The high gloss black finish feels very durable and hardened like an auto-finish.
- Very little setup was required for professional musicians. My last two Gibson SG's each needed a couple trips to the luthier to get them set up precisely the way I like them to feel. The Epi simply needed the action lowered slightly - which I did myself.
- Excellent hardware (Nicer tuners, better fret job - Didn't need any edge sanding whatsoever. The very pricey Tony Iommi Gibson USA Pickups were a requirement as per Tony - Great pickups.)
- Extras: The obvious cross inlays are a necessary requirement for any T.I. limited edition and they look great. Strap button is on the horn of the SG. Cord input is on the side which I prefer.
As you may already know, the TI Limited Edition comes with a hand signed certificate of authenticity and keepsake by Tony himself. (I must have received an early version because my COA also had the serial number hand signed). It also has his signature embossed on the back of the neck.

CONS: Sounds like a big deal and although I was highly annoyed, there's an easy and permanent fix: My guitar (and I suspect others as well) had loose strap buttons screws. Although this happens to most guitars eventually, I was disappointed to see that not only was EPI aware of the issue, they actually tried addressing the issue in production by using the old "toothpick in the hole trick". The only problem is they did not add a drop of glue so the strap button screws became loose anyway.

To fix permanently simply add a toothpick and a drop of glue and it should hold indefinitely.

Bottom line: I would definitely recommend the guitar to others while they still last. I used a 20 pct. off GC coupon so the price was close to $700. Once they're gone, they're gone forever. For all you TI fans, the signature is a nice keepsake as well.
