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 Sabbath, Tony 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 centre of it all.
Watch and share the new Tony Iommi animated clip from Gibson TV below, HERE. 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.
Epiphone is proud to release a guitar based on the iconic original that launched countless heavy riffs in a striking Vintage Cherry finish. The Epiphone Tony Iommi SG Special features a two-piece mahogany body, a bound one-piece mahogany neck with a rounded profile, an Indian laurel fretboard with 22 frets, a Graph Tech nut, Grover Rotomatic tuners with contemporary style buttons and chrome-covered Epiphone PRO P-90 pickups that are wired to CTS potentiometers and Orange Drop capacitors. A static cling reproduction of Tony’s “Monkey” sticker is in the included hardshell case. The new Epiphone Tony Iommi SG Special is available in both left and right-handed versions.

The timeless legend Elizabeth Bathory, the “Blood Countess,” is the protagonist of Exsanguinata, a new short horror film which just made its world premiere at the New Jerse Horror Con and Film Festival. Directed by Gretchen Heinel and produced by Sabbath Assembly and Saltpeter Filmworks, Exsanguinata stars Jamie Myers and David Christian from Sabbath Assembly, with an exclusive soundtrack by the band, as well.
The film reveals a noblewoman and her devotees perpetuating their power by preying upon her subjects. For each young victim, the rite of adolescence becomes a rite of death. And for the noblewoman—the Countess Bathory—the rite of death becomes a rite of adolescence. Roles reversed, through blood sacrifice.
The film is available on Vimeo On Demand for $1.11 to rent or $4.44 to download. Watch the trailer HERE (warning: NSFW) and find out more about Exsanguinata at its official website HERE.
