Tony Iommi Custom SG By Jaydee:

This is a nice guitar! What can I say it is Beautiful.... I have to add this to the list.

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 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.
