a faithful reproduction of Young’s trademark axe

Angus Young

musical instruments image In 1961, the traditional Les Paul Standardreceived a makeover that included a thinner body with sharply pointed horns and eventually a new name – the SG. Today’s reissue features the small pickguard and nickel-plated hardware of the original ’61.
For over 25 years, the scorching riffs of Angus Young have driven the anthems of AC/DC up the charts and around the world.
The new Gibson Angus Young Signature SG guitar is a faithful reproduction of the artist’s trademark axe. Designed and manufactured to Angus’ exacting specifications, this SG has exactly what it takes to rock ‘all night long.’ It’s exact, even down to the worn engraving on the Lyre Vibrola tailpiece. These new SG musical instruments feature an engraved lyre vibrola, an Angus Signature treble pickup along with a ’57 Classic rhythm pickup, an Angus Signature humbucker (bridge), mahogany body and neck, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl trapezoid inlays, single-bound neck, nickel hardware,a ‘Devil’ peghead decal and comes with a special Gibson Angus Young Signature SG hardshell case.
Rock all night long. It’s a fast machine.
