Angus Young is one of the most recognizable figures in all of rock and roll. As the lead guitarist for AC/DC, Angus Young has defined the stripped-down bare essence of hard rock for over two decades, and his faithful Gibson SG possesses that elusive and crunching rock and roll tone that so many players strive to achieve. The Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker is a bridge position pickup with an Alnico V magnet and special balanced-coil windings using vintage enamel-like coated wiring that delivers a 1–2 combination of punch and vintage tone. This is the pickup that Angus himself plays, and it features shielded, four–conductor wiring for series, parallel or split coil operation. It is also fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of microphonic feedback.
