Gibson Limited Edition Tony Iommi of the legendary band Black Sabbath!
This SG Standard in Ebony finish was made in 2002. This guitar features a mahogany body, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. Equipped with Gibson Tony Iommi Signature Humbuckers controlled by 2 volume & 2 tone knobs along with a 3-way pickup selector switch. The Tony Iommi signature Humbuckers are the same pickups that Toni Iommi uses in his own signature Gibson SG. A unique pickup design delivers heavy punch, balanced lows, blistering mids, and razor-edged highs. Patented magnet configuration and special wire winding ensure maximum sustain, while wax potting prevent unwanted feedback.
The 24.75” scale length neck has a thick D shape neck profile with 24 frets and mother of pearl cross inlays. A signature Tony Iommi truss rod cover is on the headstock along with factory Grover tuning machines that hold tuning very well. A classic Gibson Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece along with Top-Hat reflector knobs and a 3-way switch just like Tony’s SG. The original Gibson Tony Iommi hardshell case is VERY cool which is black with black hardware, a black silk insert with Tony Iommi signature on the top and a cross matching the Iconic fretboard inlays on the top of the case.
This guitar is in very good condition for it’s age. There are surface scratches to the front and back of the body along with some minor dings. You can tell the guitar was loved and PLAYED but it wasn’t neglected or abused. Scratching and pitting is visible on the pickup covers, the hardware also shows pitting and signs of age. Being a gloss black guitar, if you move it around under various lighting sources you’ll see swirls and indications of player wear. Many of the hardware screws have oxidized leaving them a brassy rust color. If you’re the kind of guitar lover that we we are, you’ll find this only adds more vibe and character to an already remarkably COOL guitar!
It’s been freshly set up with D’Addario .10-.46 strings with low fast action and a straight neck. Ships in original Gibson hard shell Iommi signature case.
