    I'm sure you probably have a thread somewhere, where you documented the build?

    Could you post it here?

    So is Tony thinking of buying your guitar or maybe signing some kind of contract where you can build him more guitars? I would get on him about that. But then again, he is a legend. ;)

    Tony's not buying anything...I built it for him free of charge.
    But there is a catch :cool:
    Once's it's seen and heard I'm hoping I'll get requests for replicas :hmm:
    ( BTW: I got at least 10 people asking me if I'm going to build them and how much ? )
    Free Advertising ?.....Maybe !

    What better advertising than the man himself! I have a feeling you are going to be a very busy man in the next few months coming up. I previously saw your build on the SG forum and I have to say that guitar looks impressive. Even Gibson couldn't come up with a signature guitar that good! I liked how you combined the old with the new (24 frets instead of 22, the pickups, etc.) That's quite the thrill having an iconic guitarist that you looked up to all this time play a guitar that you've built. It must feel surreal, doesn't it?:bowdown: I have to say I'm impressed, and so is Tony.:yesway::metal:

    Literally probably the most awesome thing I've seen on any of these sites.

    My guitar teacher told me that he heard that sabbath was coming near us, and I quickly told him that I knew of the guy who built one of the guitars he tours with. So cool!

    Great photos of Tony enjoying your guitar.:cool: It's looks like this might become his #1. You should post that picture where you have that guitar in your backyard in front of the statue of mother Mary. That's a real good photo and I'm drooling thinking about it. How much would you approximately charge for building a guitar like this (for reference sake)? I'm G.A.S.ing for another SG, in red!:dude:

    I'm still awaiting work from my pickup guy in the UK.
    If he comes through I will be making replica's of the above guitar.

    Will the replicas be sporting his name on the HS too?

    He's on the cover of Guitar World and there's a shot of him with that guitar. :) He's mostly featured with a JD with what seemed like a reliced white finish, but there's one shot with what I believe to be the one you built.

    When I see Tony I'll ask him if it's ok to use the decal. If it's fine with him than yes, it will be on it.

    Well I finally found out which track was recorded using the Monkey SG on the new "13" Album.

    Track #3- "Loner" :dude:
