Designed by Gibson and Tony Iommi the USA Signature pickups provide the legendary Black Sabbath tone which helped define the sound of modern metal and rock music. Delivering incredible sustain and clarity the Iommi Signature pickups offer cutting highs, defined middle and deep lows perfect for creating a full and punchy tone.
With most set neck guitars you will often find that the connection heel between the neck and body is rather bulky and can cause access problems to the high frets. However, the Tony Iommi Signature features a unique smooth heel construction which is sculpted to the shape of the palm to allow smooth and quick access to the higher register.
The Epiphone Tony Iommi incorporates an innovative locking tune?o-matic bridge and tail piece system which eliminates a problem every guitarist who uses a tune-o-matic bridge will have encountered which is the lack of stability when the strings are removed which causes the bridge/tailpiece to fall off and minor unwanted adjustments to the bridge height to be made. However the locking tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece make that a thing of the past, with high tension springs fitted into the attachments the bridge now clips and locks into place without the use of tools and also increases sustain by up to 20%.
Tony Iommi is an English guitarist born in 1948 who has become a legend amongst many rock and metal guitarist for his performing and songwriting in bands such as Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell. Having lost his fingertips in a tragic accident Iommi has pushed past injury to create his own unique sound and playing style unlike any other guitarist. Renowned for his loyalty to the SG shape Iommi has teamed up with Epiphone to create an incredible signature model which delivers a smooth playability and fierce tone night after night.
