What I have in my collection is a 1969 Gibson SG Standard. This is the classic Angus Young guitar. The Gibson SG was introduced in 1961 as a complete replacement for the Les Paul. The new design was thought to be a more modern solidbody guitar, with sleek beveled edges and two sharp cutaways. By late 1963, the Les Paul moniker was dropped, and the SG (or Solid Guitar) became an entirely separate model. The SG has remained in steady production ever since earning a place as one of the truly classic solidbody guitars.
The unique thing about the 1969 model is that Gibson phases out the Lyre vibrato tailpiece mid-1969. Those with the Lyre (like the one I have in my collection) are more sought-after. Guitar plays like butter, sounds unbelievable! It has a narrow nut width made for only two years '68-'69. It has one-piece neck! After more than 45 years, it still has that nice cherry finish. Other notable SG Standard players include Derek Trucks, Bobby Krieger, Eric Clapton.
