Spectacular!

By Timbecile

from Simi Valley, CA

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

Like I said before. I really can't imaging putting any other humbucker in a bridge position again. If they made one that fit in a single coil slot, I'd put one in my strat too!
I threw this into my Epiphone faded G-400, plugged it into my Marshall JCM 2000, and what a difference. If you're looking for a big, beefy, and warm pickup, this is it. I can't imagine using any other bridge pickup ever again.
So far so good. I'll probably end up playing 60 or 70 shows this year with that pickup, and it hasn't let me down yet!
Well worth the price, but it looks like it's gone up quite a bit since I got mine. Doesn't matter though. Still a great pickup at any price.

Great pickup, but....

By SigsvsGates

from Duluth, MN

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

I am somewhat confused as to what Angus wants in a pickup. Why come out with a pickup, never use it on stage or in studio, and then have a custom seymour duncan pickup made for you instead? At any rate, I find the pickup itself to be good for many types of rock and metal if used with a good qualit amp. It does not seem to like most pedals and it performs questionably with solid state amps. I really wish I could say more for this pickup, but if Angus won't use his own pickup maybe its worth calling up seymour duncan custom and getting a replica of Ang's real pickup.

Angus Young Signature humbucker

By StoneBarn

from Asbury Park NJ

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

This is an easy review: This pickup is excellent! Disregarding the pickup's namesake, I love the tone of this 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 2000 Les Paul Classic the 496 & 500 (both excellent pickups as well) and put the Angus in the bridge and a Burstbucker Pro in the neck. 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 LP.

Bright, Punchy, Awesome.

By JTbluesUK-kkxRJ

from Roanoke,VA

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

I replaced the pickups in my Epiphone Sheraton II and put one of these in the bridge. AWESOME. I love the sounds this thing comes out with. It has a very clean sound at high gain which is perfect for solos, and allows you to use chords with some gain and not get muddy dissonance. The overall tone is BRIGHT- and it'll make your rhythms sharp and punchy, and your lead tones sing clear and throaty.Excellent value, if you're trying to get a rock sound that will cut down trees without getting muddy- GET THIS PICKUP.

Best ever

By Leslie32

from North Carolina

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

I've only had this pickup in my guitar (Gibson Les Paul) For a minute or two and could already tell the difference in the sound.When you want it to be clean and smooth it can do that, and when you want it to be crunchy and mean it does that too!Gnarly pickup, would highly recommend it to all you serious guitar players.

Great for covering AC DC tone

By Old_Guitar_Slinger131

from Missouri

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

The Angus Young pickup is a heck of a lot of fun, but it?s really a one dimensional pickup. It was made to play AC DC music, pushed hard through a loud Marshall tube Amp. Combining this pickup with a loud Marshall tube Amp will nail the ACDC tone that is a mix between the old days of Bon Scott, and the current days of Brian Johnson. This is the tone that this thing was made for. How could it not be? It?s a Gibson Angus Young Signature Pickup. If you think it?s going to cover the broad tonal range of a Gibson 57 Classic Plus, you are simply crazy. It would be like getting a DiMarzio Super Distortion with the expectation that it is going to sound like a Gibson Burstbucker Pro. This pickup was wound to play that very unique tone associated with AC DC.With that said, if you play any AC DC music live, this lovely little pickup is a must in the bridge position of a humbucker equipped guitar. The going price is pretty high, but that is what you have to pay to get a quality pickup made by Gibson. If you want the best, you better be prepared to pay for the best. I?m not getting rid of mine because it?s so dang near close to a spot on tone of Angus Young?s. Just be prepared to have another guitar, equipped with different pickups, to cover any other music that is not AC DC.

Angus Signature Humbucker

By Charlie

from NYC, New York

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

I highly recommend this pickup, especially if you're going for that Angus sound. Also sounds fantastic for blues. These are really hot and they definitely scream. This pickup also sounds really good with the classic 57 humbucker on the neck. One of the biggest differences I noticed was the sustain on this pickup. I had the standard 490 and difference in sustain is night and day. Really transformed the sound of my SG. 2 thumbs up...

So Good!

By That-one-guy

from Louisiana

Comments about Gibson Angus Young Signature Humbucker:

Ive been using this pick up for a few years now once on a Tele and now on a Les Paul and I will tell you this the Pickup, Angus or not is amazing.The pickup is a little on the hot side compared to classic 57s. The cleans are very sharp and precise, but it really shows off when you turn it up. The tone is so smooth at high volumes with tons of attack. I play it on a Bogner and a Marshall JCM 800. If your looking for tone through pedals keep looking this is a purists pickup. If you just want to crank it and rock, the Angus Young Signature Humbucker Salutes You!
