About the original Jaydee Old Boy


This instrument was built in Birmingham, England by John Diggins, now Jaydee Custom Guitars. The exact date of its manufacture is not recorded (or remembered!), but will certainly be between 1975 and 1978. The guitar was first used for some overdubs on the 'Heaven and Hell' album. It was then used more and more frequently and soon took over from the black John Birch S.G. as the main instrument both on the road and in the studio.



This week's metal guitar is Tony Iommi's Jaydee SG Custom, also known as the "Old Boy." This is Tony's main electric guitar, both live and in studio. He has a lot of Gibson SG customs but Tony don't give two shits about them. The "Old Boy" is his guitar workhorse because he prefers its tone more than anything else. IMO, I think there is also some sentimental emotions involved.

Dtails of the Jaydee Old Boy


Although "Old Boy" looks grotesque and terribly old, it has a very dark but sweet tone. We bet the frets feel like heaven! Iommi plays the guitar as if it's a part of his body. Just watch the Heaven and Hell DVD and you'll see "Old Boy" in action.



There is a pickup selector switch and five control knobs on the front of the instrument, though only three are wired in. All of Tony's road guitars have the bridge pick up tone control disconnected. The fifth control was connected to a booster circuit, which has been removed. There is also an additional ¼" jack socket on the front of the guitar. This was originally a low impedance output for recording purposes, but has subsequently been disconnected.

Unfortunately, this guitar is one of a kind. There is no way in the world you can get an exact replica.

It is worth mentioning that the hardware and pickups we select are Wilkinsons. We have to admit that Wilkinson hardware and pickups are not as good as the original ones.
