Angus Young’s Fender Extra Heavy Guitar Picks

According to the 2016 Rig Rundown feature done by Premier Guitar magazine, Angus uses Fender Extra Heavy picks. [Rig Rundown – AC/DC’s Angus Young & Stevie Young]

It is important to note that these are older models with the Fender stamp burned in (the logo is indented), as opposed to it being printed on. Apparently, Angus likes the grippy feel of the older models.

In case you’re looking for similar picks, you can try out Fender 351 Shape, Tortoise Shell Extra Heavy picks, which don’t have the indented logo, but have a wave grip pattern which provides probably even more grip.
