Get Paranoid! Tony Iommi, lead guitarist of the legendary Hard Rock band "Black Sabbath", delivered an uncompromising Hard Rock and Heavy Metal sound with his Gibson SG "The Monkey" in the early 1970s, despite having severed fingertips. The new Gibson SG Tony Iommi Signature pays homage to Tony himself and to the early days of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. A time when a singer, drums, bass and electric guitar were enough to create legendary music for the ages. Simple, honest and loud Rock music.
This detailed reissue of Tony Iommi's legendary 1964 Gibson SG "The Monkey" is not only a must-have for Iommi fans, but also an ideal tool for uncompromising rockers of today. Perfect for live and in the studio. At first glance you can see that this is a very special guitar! It was given all those features that make the original "Monkey" so special. A mahogany body and neck with a rounded profile, an Indian rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets, a Graph Tech saddle, Grover Rotomatic machine heads and "Witch Hat" control buttons as well as extra chrome-plated P-90 pickups make this SG a very special Rock guitar. Fat overdrive sounds, heavy riffs and energetic solos are the specialty of the Gibson SG Tony Iommi Signature, which comes damn close to the sound of the iconic original.
