Angus Young’s Gibson SG Junior

Angus was seen playing this guitar during the Howard Stern interview recorded in 1997. The guitar seems to be just a stock Gibson SG Junior with a single P90 pickup in the bridge position.

Based on the fact that this seems to be the only time that Angus ever used it, it could mean that the guitar was provided by Stern. Maybe he had planned to ask the guys for a quick song, and seeing how Brian was unprepared, it seems to make sense.

This SG Junior is his and seems to be his guitar of choice when doing interviews. I first saw it when he did the cover of Guitarist magazine in the UK years ago, but its appeared on at least a couple of others. Also, if you go to youtube and search for “angus young the guitar show” it has a good interview with him playing Hendrix riffs etc on it.
