Angus Young’s 1960s Gibson SG Standardaccess_time First seen circa 1978
This is one of the three guitars that Angus started using after he retired his original 1970s Gibson SG Standard, circa 1978. It was also the first ever early 60s SG Standard that he ever used.Embed from Getty Images
Prior to this guitar, he mostly preferred early 1970s models with tremolo pieces and large pickguards. However, it seems that starting with this guitar, most of the guitars that he would use at least during the 80s would be early 60s style SGs. According to some sources, Angus had a deal with Gibson to play the guitars on stage (a credible source is needed on this).
