Gibson custom Angus Young SG

The 1968 Gibson SG has been a nearly constant companion of Angus Young since the AC/DC guitarist picked it up in 1970.  The Custom Shop of Gibson Guitars set out to duplicate every detail of the axe that has powered virtually every great AC/DC track since 1973 when it built 250 replicas of the fabled guitar.  Any deviations from the original were made at the specific request of Young, who wanted an ebony fingerboard with lighning bolt inlays in addition to the individual bolts that adorn the unusually slender neck of the instrument.  Hand finishing was done to build authentic looking aging into the finish of every guitar, each of which comes with a leather bound certificate of authenticity.
