Few guitarists, with the obvious exception of Hendrix and his white Fender Stratocaster, are so famously associated with a particular model of electric guitar as Angus Young. In case you were wondering, his original ’68 SG and back up 1964 model are both strung with Ernie Ball 10-48 strings.
Want more? Ok. For amplification, Angus fires up an arsenal of vintage Marshall ‘Plexi’ models. His main squeeze is a JTM45, a 50-watt head, but apparently he often uses a 100-watt Plexi head for recording riffs in the studio. His speaker cabinets are Marshall 4x12 1982B and 1960B models loaded with Celestion speakers.
Angus' taste in speakers has changed over the years (and they may even have changed again since writing this). Originally relying on a Celestion G12H 30 watt in the early days of AC/ DC, he now uses Celestion Vintage 30s and G12M 25 watt speakers. For the most ardent of geeks among you, Angus spanks his plank with Fender extra heavy picks.
