Angus Young is a guitarist and songwriter who has been the lead guitarist of Australian hard rock band AC/DC from it's start in 1973. Young is known for his hard-edge style lead (and his signature vibrato), wild stage energy, and most importantly, that sexy schoolboy clothing. He was ranked 96th on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

In this article we will look at what gear and equipment has been seen in Angus Young's Guitar Rig.
