Hi all, First time poster here. Nice to meet you! I have played Gibsons for many years but lately I have been digging into the great Mr. Iommi's riffs and, so, have decided to get a tribute guitar together. Not necessarily the monkey variety but a nice black SG standard with steel cross inlays and a pair of killer pups like the John Birch ones. OK, that said, a custom shop Iommi tribute is crazy expensive and an Epiphone one is slummin' it a bit :-) I'd like some ideas from those of you in the know please. Should I build one and do all the mods myself over time, buy a Birch or Old Boy tribute model (maybe used?). Just looking to dig into tones from the early albums through Heaven and Hell and want a little flash for my journey!
