Product Description

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’s own ’68 model, known to be a stand-out example among a classic breed. It’s light, all-mahogany body yields superb resonance, while it’s extra slim, narrow neck provides unparalleled playability that is topped with a fingerboard with lightning-bolt inlays, it also 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 SGs of the ’60s
  • 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’s 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.

Process
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. In addition, a nitro finish is very porous and actually gets thinner over time.

My new fav
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This thing is built like a tank. Really wouldn't change a thing.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
I have two other gibson SG's, a SG standard in ebony and a SG '61 reissue. This has become my favorite one to pick up and play.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
This thing sounds awesome. I am the biggest AC/DC fan there is. When I plug my ipod into my surround system and crank my amp up and play along with AC/DC it matches it perfectly and that isn't with a good tube amp. I play through a Marshall MG100HDFX and I can still get an alright AC/DC sound through it. Next purchase will be a good tube amp.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The paint is beautiful. Ebony is already my favorite color on anything especially on a guitar.
