Angus Young’s 1960s Gibson SG Standard (Sideways Vibrola)

Angus was seen playing this guitar around 1980/81. Based on the looks, the guitar was an early 60s model, made before 1963 when Gibson switched to the Maestro Vibrola.

Unfortunately, not much else is known about this guitar, so as always, if you happen to know anything, post it in the comments.
