By leveraging its iconic past and leaning into the future, Epiphone has set the stage for the next era of sound for present and future generations. 

Epiphone is proud to take the next step in its partnership with legendary guitarist of Black SabbathTony Iommi and launch the Tony Iommi SG Special, a new and exciting version of his beloved SG guitar which helped shape Heavy Metal. The Epiphone Tony Iommi SG Special is now available worldwide on www.Epiphone.com

Tony Iommi’s iconic riffs, heavy tones, and massively influential albums created the blueprint for heavy metal and many other genres to follow. After an early accident that almost ended his career as a guitarist, Tony persevered to become universally loved and revered. And while Tony’s innovative tuning and playing styles have always been a major part of his monstrous tones, his original, heavily–modified 1964 Gibson SG Special, nick-named “Monkey” was at the center of it all.

The video features the Black Sabbath song “Fairies Wear Boots” and follows a monkey–a monkey sticker has been on Tony’s original guitar since the beginning–as he travels through a dark forest until he finds the temple of doom where Tony Iommi lives.
