If you’ve never quite been able to nail down Tony Iommi’s classic Black Sabbath, tone, Gibson has you covered. The company has just rolled out a recreation of Iommi’s heavily-modified 1964 Gibson SG, aptly named the Tony Iommi SG Special. Though I would’ve also accepted The Stoner Metal Dream Machine as a name.
The Tony Iommi SG Special features a Mahogany body finished in Cherry, along with a Mahogany neck with a 22-fret Indian Rosewood fretboard and Cream Binding. The SG also comes loaded with two chrome-covered P-90 pickups for that extra chunky “Into The Void”-type tone, and even has a reproduction of Tony’s “Monkey” sticker on the case. Basically, you’re given the tools of the Iommic trade on this one. For hardware, the Tony Iommi SG Special offers a Graph Tech nut and Grover Rotomatic tuners with contemporary style buttons.
