Tony Iommi Sg Guitars


Recommended Posts




The SG has been around for forty years or more. During this period it has undergone a few design changes that have not always been in its favour. Yet, it has still become a favourite with many guitarists who have kept the interest in this instrument alive.


One such musician is Tony Iommi of "Black Sabbath" I met Tony Iommi sg guitar in the early 70's while working with John Birch. Tony had a left handed SG special which had the most amazing body contours that were so pronounced, I must admit, I did copy them, and have done ever since. I believe this is what an SG should look like.
