Cool vid, Solo. Awesome tone, love it!
The nicest SG Angus ever played was the black SG-custom with white guard.
Here in Dirty custom lefty mode
Modded it from a butchered SG-faded
Just some info for any old school ACDC fans in Sydney. I'd forgotten about this until today when I went into the shop and had a chat to him - Mark Evans, the bass player ACDC in their Bon Scott glory days, works at Downtown Music in Annandale. He's a really nice guy, modest and very approachable if you want to have a chat about guitars or the Young brothers.
I definitely have no affiliation with Downtown Music, just thought this might be a buzz for any ACDC fans.
Okay, I'm buying a ticket to go down under!
Aren't ACDC playing here in OZ this week?
My brother went to 1 of the concerts in NZ last week.
I just got home from the Auckland show. 'Twas pretty awesome.
I'm too broke to go - having a talk to Mark is as close as I'll get.
Oh I was just kidding. Won't go. Wouldn't even feel right to go there as the nobody I am and start asking gearhead questions to Mark "so what year was Angus' first SG? Tell me. Oh and what notes did Angus exactly play on such song? And what amp did he exactly use when you were there...?"
I feel like a fool already.
hey Solo did you get those fingers on the black market,signature series Angus young's fingers very nice playing there!
had missed this one.
Not much *I* do know about that custom. Apart that, it is a late 60s custom three pickups where the middle pickup has been taken out and a new, white pickguard has been put on.
Also, the Lyre Vibrola has been removed for better guitar stability.
It could well be a 1970 or little earlier model.
Very rare. Never found any such colored custom in years of searching. Would buy it with a snap if I saw one that dark (not sure it is really black, might be dark green or very dark cheery/walnut). Probably a custom color!
Look at this one:
X^btVäÌOêðUæ11eI Gibson SG CUSTOM '69 Ebony Black
Shiat. That could easily be it. Now if only I spoke Japanese...
Yes, thats a nice SG, it should be the custom that can be seen in the LET THERE BE ROCK LIVE concert.
It is the " out of tune spare guitar" given to Angus in the Whole Lotta Rosie solo...
Would love to see a Re Issue of that.
No long ago I was able to find this one but by the time I contacted the site it was gone
Thanks for the info Dallas!
Hope you will find one!
As a lefty I gave up searchin´ and made it myself
And you did very well. I love the look of yours (both of them actually).
I am trying to see if that Japanese shop will lower the price. That SG posted above is far too expensive for a '69: 8.5k Euro. I understand that it is quite rare, but it is still too much. Will see!
Is the lightning bolt SG a 71? Or a 68? Its a shame this thread is so old all the pictures are gone.
And yes holy necrobump batman.
Yes, a necro post, but I just read the OP for the first time about the low output pups on Angus' 68 SG. The OP wonders how Angus got his tone out of such low output pups.
The answer may well be the combining of low output pups with a high gain amp. I use a high gain amp, and some of my guitars purposely have low output pups for the distinctive tone the combination gives. Not saying I can make this sound like Angus, but it sounds damn good and smooth. Much unlike teaming high output pups with a high gain amp.
But they didnt use high gain ampe. Just old Marshalls cranked.
Maybe, but do you know whether Angus had his amps modded or not? Not a bit uncommon in those days
No mods. The amps are just insanley loud with the Schaffer Vega wireless system. They didnt know back then that the Schaffer Vega boosted And compressed the sound a bit. Giving Angus that driven sound we all know. AC/DC isnt about gain, just a lot of volume.
