Signature Humbucker Angus Young

For almost four decades now, AC/DC's Angus Young has delighted us with his SG sound. What could be more fitting than Gibson finally building him a signature SG - and an Angus Young humbucker to go with it?

Angus didn't require anything spectacularly pioneering, but the humbucker combines the clear punch - as we know it from Angus's mostly PAF-equipped guitars - with a little more bite and power, making it ideal for sounds between crunch and sustain-rich lead sounds.

Sound like Angus

JollyRoger, 22.02.2014
This is an subjective review - mount on an Gibson SG Std.:

This pickup works perfect! Disregarding the pickup's namesake, I love the tone of this gibson humbucker.

It screams but has a focused, well controlled edge thanks to the wax potting.

It's also offered as a 4 conductor. I pulled out of my 2012 Gibson SG the Classic 57 on the bridge position and replaced it with the Angus Young Signature.

I also used Duncan triple shots to enable series/split/parallel switching on both pickups and a phase reverse on the neck so when both are on, they can be thrown out of phase with each other. Thanks in big part to the angus young bridge pickup, I have what I consider my ultimate SG.

Take your Gibson SG, a Plexi and feel like Angus!
This Pickup is rock ´n roll!

ACDC me veil!

Vincent C., 29.05.2011
Small presentation of the microphone:
Gibson Angus Young Signature, AlNiCo V magnets wound "old-fashioned", "wax potted" twice to avoid microphony, is positioned only on easel.

This microphone was developed by Gibson in partnership with Angus Young (ACDC).
It is not strictly speaking a replica of PAF, but uses the base with characteristics chosen by Angus himself (which, contrary to what can be believed do not use periodic microphones but microphones Wound as desired). In this microphone is found both the vintage side and the energy of the famous master of SG.

I bought this microphone to replace the 498T of my Gibson SG Standard.
I found the original micro draft, compressed, the grain too smooth.
By installing this microphone I rediscovered my guitar, it is as sublimated.

The sound is granular, rocky to wish, with a lot of punch and dynamics, the sound is not compressed, the notes are well released, the chords accurate. It takes 40 years of Hard Rock in the face from the first chord.

His favorite field is of course the crunch, the overdrive but he will not be impressed by the distorted sounds heavy metal.

I just regret that it is not proposed in two-conductor version (everyone does not use the split and for the vintage principle ...) and in brushed nickel finish. The wiring would gain to be a more dense coat, just for handling.

In short, if you want to get closer to the sound of the edgy schoolboy (yes, do not forget that you need the amp too) you will not go wrong choosing this microphone.

My advice: do not hesitate to associate 500K potentiometers and a PIO capacitor for better sound quality.
