This issue we meet Tony Iommi, the godfather of hard rock and metal, to talk about the Black Sabbath's seminal early years and the guitar that started it all - his heavily modded 'Monkey' SG, which has now been painstakingly recreated by Gibson. In this in-depth interview, Tony reveals his struggle to prove wrong those who told him he couldn't make it and explains the roots of his brooding, powerful guitar style. We also examine the new Gibson Tony Iommi 'Monkey' SG in full detail and speak to the tone experts from Gibson and Laney amplification about how he got his devastating tone in the early years. Elsewhere in this packed issue we also look at the history and technical evolution of Gibson's wild child electric, the SG, review two new affordable SE versions of PRS's Hollowbody electric, take a masterclass in Louisiana blues-fusion with fretboard phenomenon Jonathon Long and examine what over-exploitation of the worlds forests means for guitar making in years to come.
