OVERVIEW

Back in black, and ready to rock.

Classic rock doesn't get much bigger than AC/DC, and no one wails out massive, bone-crunching tone like Angus Young on his Gibson SG electric guitar. Young's incendiary tone has inspired wave after wave of rock guitar heroes, and turned on countless players to the power of his seminal guitar of choice, the Gibson SG. Now the Gibson USA Angus Young guitar, brings all the tone and playability of this classic double-cutaway made to Angus Young's own specs within reach of the hardworking rock guitarist, giving you all the punch, crunch, and sizzle that Angus achieves with his own treasured Gibson guitar.

Way back in 1961 the Gibson SG electric guitar replaced the under appreciated Les Paul Standard, and while the Les Paul would surface later in the decade as a rock and blues classic, the Gibson SG (originally named Les Paul/SG) was an instant hit in its own right. Its simple yet inspired ingredients of thin, all-mahogany body and neck and two Gibson humbucking pickups gave it a snappy attack with a muscular punch, and its slim, fast neck yielded unprecedented playability. The Gibson SG Angus Young guitar not only captures the look, feel, and sound of a classic SG, the Gibson electric guitar also embodies some of the rare specs and qualities of Angus Young's own '68 guitar, known to be a standout example among a classic breed. The Angus Young guitar's light, all-mahogany body yields superb resonance, while its extra slim, narrow neck provides unparalleled playability”and, topped with an upgraded rosewood fingerboard with lightning-bolt inlays, it features a look that will help any rocker stand out from the crowd. Loaded with Gibson's popular '57 Classic humbucking pickup in the neck and an Angus Young humbucker in the bridge for added punch and sizzle, it packs all the firepower a gigging guitarist needs to cut it on the big stage. Each Gibson Angus Young guitar comes with a snug-fitting Gibson USA hardshell electric guitar case.

Comments about Gibson Angus Young SG Electric Guitar:

Gibson sent us this guitar to use on the new Phrase By Phrase Guitar Method: AC/DC DVD, (Musicians Friend Item # 620550). I had been rehearsing for the DVD on other SGs that I own and was struggling to match Angus' style and tone. The minute this guitar arrived, I knew we had a winner. Gibson has matched Angus Young's iconic guitar and tone to perfection. Also, outside of playing AC/DC, this guitar can capture it all. The playability of the neck, the look and feel of the guitar and the tone combinations between the neck and bridge pickup win my highest possible rating for a professional instrument. Play one and you'll be hooked!

Simple the Best!!

Comments about Gibson Angus Young SG Electric Guitar:

Just got my Angus and man its awesome. Best feeling neck ever. Just as I expected. The narrow neck is perfect for my Angus sized fingers. They naturally fall right on target without effort. Man the guitar resonants!!! Loudest guitar I've owned when it's unplugged, Gibson, Kramer, cheap or expensive. Even louder than the 70s LP Custom I used to own. Best Gibson model at this price or any price!!

Great overall tone!

Comments about Gibson Angus Young SG Electric Guitar:

This new Angus guitar is pretty impressive right out of the case, before I ever plugged it in, I must have played 30 minutes, sounds better than my acoustic guitar, if your playing styles include tapping and sweeps this sounds incredible once its plugged in. I played all the Ac/Dc I know and it sounds like Gibson got it right with this guitar.

Hats off to Gibson

By Anonymous

Comments about Gibson Angus Young SG Electric Guitar:

Super sleek with unrivaled playability on the slimmer "Angus Neck". 57 neck pours out warm sustained tones while the Angus bridge gives you that ac/dc snarl. Beautiful workmenship throughout and an instant eye catcher to anyone who is semi familiar with the history of rock and roll! Would recommend to anyone who loves a guitar packed with tone.
