GIBSON | Tony Iommi 'Monkey' SG Special

Heaven and Hell Converge in this Iconic Instrument from Heavy Music's Formative Years. 

The Gibson USA Tony Iommi 'Monkey' SG Special commemorates the Black Sabbath guitarist's crushing contributions to the world of rock. 

Based on the guitarist's own heavily modified 1964 SG, this special-edition, 22-fret SG Special is finished in a rich Vintage Cherry and features a mahogany body, bound mahogany neck with rounded profile, Indian rosewood fingerboard, GraphTech nut, Grover Rotomatic tuners with contemporary-style buttons, and dual chrome-covered P-90 pickups.

 Also included is a reproduction of Tony's original "Monkey" sticker.

Tony Iommi's iconic riffs, heavy tones, and massively influential albums created the blueprint for heavy metal and many other genres to follow. His career, like the man himself, is universally loved and revered. And while his innovative tuning and playing styles were a major part of his monstrous tones, a heavily-modied 1964 Gibson SG named "Monkey" was at the center of it all. Now Gibson USA has made a guitar based on the iconic original that launched countless heavy riffs, with a mahogany body, bound mahogany neck with a rounded profile, Indian rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, a Graph Tech nut, Grover Rotomatic tuners with contemporary style buttons, and chrome-covered P-90 pickups. A reproduction of Tony's "Monkey" sticker is included in the case.
