Gibson has commended AC/DC's electric guitar player Angus Young for helping to popularise the GibsonSG.

According to the manufacturer, the Scottish-born rocker has inspired countless musicians to invest in an SG, his guitar of choice.

Young was praised for his "incendiary" lead tone and "mammoth" rhythm sound, both of which were said to have inspired "wave after wave" of rock guitar heroes.

"He has done it all on a GibsonSG Standard," Gibson remarked.

"No-one wallops out the massive bone-crunching tone like Angus Young on his GibsonSG."

The electric guitar manufacturer noted that Young purchased this instrument in 1970 and used it on all of AC/DC's albums and tours in subsequent years.

Gibson added that the band have represented the archetypal big rock guitar sound for more than three decades, thereby setting the standard for lots of other groups.

AC/DC's hits include rock standards such as Highway to Hell, Touch Too Much and Whole Lotta Rosie.
