Darius Rucker believes in the power of music and its ability impact lives for the better and through his work Darius and Friends and more, Darius has raised millions of dollars for underserved communities in need. Throughout his career, Darius keeps his favorite Gibson Acoustic guitars close stating “When I plugged my Hummingbird in, I’d never heard any guitar sound like that; It’s just what an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like to me.”
Between his Hummingbirds, J-45s, a Gibson Flying V, or his J-180 Everly Brothers/Billie Joe Armstrong guitars, Darius Rucker finds inspiration in Gibson guitars.
Elsewhere, fans can bid now to win the Gibson SG Standard autographed by rock legend, Angus Young of AC/DC. Only a few Rock and Roll pioneers break the Top 25 guitarists of the all-time list, and fewer do so by using only one model of guitar. The hard rock titan, Angus Young is synonymous for his high-voltage energetic performances, schoolboy uniforms, and his trusty Gibson SG Standard guitar.
Angus has kept his Gibson SG in hand for his entire career. Angus has been constant with his dedication to the original Gibson solid guitar design. Much like Angus’s beloved SGs, this SG features a solid mahogany body set with two humbucking pickups. The mahogany neck has a slim taper profile with a rosewood fretboard and trapezoid inlays, is ready to shred some rock and roll. With Angus Young’s signature on the pickguard of this amazing Gibson SG, place a bid to take home a piece of rock and roll history.
