Gibson Angus Young SG Standard Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
A unique specimen of a classic guitar
For more than 35 years, AC/DC has represented the archetypal "big rock" guitar sound, setting the standards for countless bands to follow. In particular, Angus Young's incendiary lead tone and mammoth rhythm crunch have inspired wave after wave of rock guitar heroes, and he has done it all on a Gibson SG. Now Gibson offers its reproduction of one of the world's most renowned SGs in the form of the Angus Young SG, a guitar that captures the tone, look, and feel of this rare specimen among a classic breed, but which updates this legendary guitar with modifications requested by Angus himself. Angus Young acquired his 1968 SG Standard in 1970, and has used it on all major AC/DC recordings and many tours since the band's inception in 1973. Young's '68 SG is known to be a superb example of this model, with pickups that blend just the right proportions of power and sweetness, and a resonant, vocal tone that represents the best of the SG formula. Listen closely to any classic AC/DC tune, and the tone is huge, but not filthy or fizzy.
Built to Angus Young's exact specifications
Angus's '68 SG achieves a stunning clarity and definition right within its bone-crushing thump and grind. With utmost attention to detail, the Angus Young SG seeks to achieve that tone, aided by a pair of humbucking pickups — a '57 Classic at the neck and an Angus Young humbucker at the bridge. The neck of the Angus Young SG is constructed from mahogany, cut using the superior "quarter sawn" orientation for improved strength and resonance. The Angus Young SG uses an individual volume control for each pickup, which consists of a high-quality linear 300K potentiometer wired in the traditional configuration of the SG Standard. Each pickup on the Angus Young SG also has its own individual tone control, which consists of a high-quality non-linear 500K potentiometer, coupled with a .0223mf capacitor, for a smooth and gradual roll-off of the pickup's treble content.
