I just learned today that Iommi was recording their self-titled album with a Strat initially. http://www.iommi.com/page.php?id=8&sec=eq"Then, right in the middle of recording our first record, one of my pickups stopped working. Back then, fixing a guitar pickup wasn't as easy as it is today and it was real work to change them. We only had two days in the studio to finish the entire record, so there was no time to waste. It was at that moment that I switched over to the SG, and I never played the Stratocaster again" - (from Hit Parader Magazine, July 1993) Does anyone know if any of the songs that made it on the album were recorded using a Stratocaster?
