Never seen before by these eyes. PRECIOUS info to me: thank you
Thanks for the info Dude! I had no idea burny made an AY replica. I am little bit blown away; especially with the year. Looks like I have to keep my eyes open now
Found this on YouTube. Sgmanfromjapan has one.. KIRK
Nice research, nice thread, nice job!
Yeah, It's a cool guitar. I'm a big Angus fan anyway, since the late 70's. Mine even has the original zebra VH1's, which are pretty hard to find, oil capacitors. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the pencil thin neck. I've been on the fence about selling it, because of that but, the AC/DC fan in me prevents me from doing it!
I'd be buying it from you any day. Just shoot your request, if you still intend to
You beet me to it Solo!! Well, I would say I am nexxt in line, but we know there wont be a second phone call !
Well, if you see any out there, let me know guys
Well, probably he won't be interested in selling, but we never know
This is interesting stuff, but in that article he states he still has that first guitar of his? I'm sure I've have seen another source which states Angus had to go and chuck his first SG in a skip, after it got so full of water and sweat that the wood was simply disgusting, making the guitar un-playable.
On another note, check out this photo from 1979 (I fully appreciate the copyright):
thanks for posting that. Yes, few knew that he also played live with a few other guitars that were supposed to be back up guitars when money was scarce back in the day.
Angus sweats like a beast, not surprisingly (anyone trying to sound like him would, as it has to be a very physical approach with the instrument).
Yes I believe he still has first SG, though I think it has gone through a number of repairs in the years to keep it in shape.
I also think that his first guitar might have transformed into one of the two "thunder" guitars or at least, one or both were derived from that one.
Who are the players in the background? Is that George Young on the right?
I also see a hiwatt.
George is there for sure on the right. He served as a bass player both in the studio and live for some time.
Didn't see well the others.
Might well be an highwatt, in the early days they used what was available
I assume thats Malcolm on the Strat?
I thought so as well. Wonder who the drummer is?
It's certainly from earlier than '79 - maybe more like 1975. Notice too that Angus is wearing jeans, not shorts.
does anyone have info on Angus' 335?
No I don't... I have read that they (Mal and Angus) always had a back-up guitar; when they could afford it. But if my memory serves me right, it was a fender, so it could very well be the one Mal is playing.
Angus might have borrowed that from another musician, or it could very well be his own. I have seen a few photos very similar to that (I assumed from the same night), so it may just have been a one time thing. Then again, no one really knows. If anyone could tell you, it might be Angus. But I wouldnt bet the farm on it.
If I bump into him, I will be sure to ask him. I think thats a good question
SoloDallas, you are getting me very informed about the SG model and thank you for that.
Nick, not just to say it, but it really is my pleasure
I hope this isn't going too far off-topic, but does anybody know what year and what models of Les Paul Angus has played, either on stage or in the studio? I read an interview with him a few years ago where he stated that he had used them a few times, but I have never seen a photograph that would confirm it.
SoloDallas - this is excellent reading! Thankyou for putting in all the effort!
