AC/DC's Angus Young provides the most recognized classic rock tone with his Gibson SG!

The Gibson USA Angus Young SG not only captures the look, feel and sound of a classic SG, it also embodies some of the rare specs and qualities of Angus' own '68 model, known to be a stand-out example among a classic breed. It's light, all-mahogany body yields superb resonance, while its extra slim, narrow neck provides unparalleled playability that is topped with an upgraded ebony fingerboard with lightning-bolt inlays. It provides 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 also packs all the firepower a gigging guitarist needs to cut it on the big stage.

Each guitar comes with a snug-fitting, Gibson USA hardshell case.

Gibson USA Angus Young SG Features
Solid mahogany, just like the original SG's of the 60's
Thin, flat-topped body that aids resonance and reduces weight
Average weight is 4.95 lbs before pickups and hardware are added
The neck is constructed from one piece of solid, quarter-sawn mahogany
The neck profile is carved to Angus' own requirements
Includes Black, form fitting Hardshell Case with Gibson USA screenprint

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 SG. Now the Gibson USA Angus Young SG brings all the tone and playability of this classic, double-cutaway (made to Young's own specs) within reach of the hard-working rock guitarist, giving you all the punch, crunch and sizzle that Angus achieves with his own treasured instrument.

Tonal Characteristics
Mahogany is a medium-dense wood with excellent resonance and superior sustain and it offers a rich, round, warm tone, but with plenty of high-end sheen and good midrange presence. The mahogany of the Gibson USA Angus Young SG also lends a percussive snap and some added clarity to the tone of the guitar.

The angled, classical-style peg head and mahogany neck work together to provide exceptional tonal richness and resonance from the neck, with outstanding string clarity definition from the maple.

The Gibson USA Angus Young SG is hand-finished in nitrocellulose in a multi-step process that is carefully monitored to ensure minimum build-up, to produce a finish that breathes with the guitar and enhances natural resonance. Unlike many other manufacturers who settle for a polyurethane finish, Gibson opts for a nitrocellulose finish that will encourage the natural vibration of the instrument for a purer tone.

Man when i got this guitar i knew it was something special. The neck is amazing... the resonance is amazing... you can get so many sounds by using either the classic 57's or the angus pickup... the combination of both pickups on is just amazing. Worth every penny and then some.
