'61 reissue pwns the standard, better pickups('57 classics), better feel, and imo better looks.

IMO I'd definitally say the 61, the pickups have a more vintage flavour

61 reissue, hands down.
make sure to crank up some old school distortion too.
then pop on your school boy uniform and dance that f*ckin' stage.
METALLICA!!!

61 reissue hands down... although i have played both and some other gibsons... and angus young tone is just overdrive then set EVERYTHING to 11... that does it with most guitars that have humbuckers

EDIT: btw look up "solo dallas" on youtube... the man is the biggest ACDC fan ever... and plays some covers with his 61 reissue... sounds like sex of the gods

It doesn't matter. You can get the sound with both. Hell, I've gotten that sound on my dean before! All you got to do is play with you volume and tone nobs for a minute or two and there you go. You'll sound like Angus in no time.

actually angus mostly just overdrove the clean naturally by cranking it up
thats the beauty of valve amps
