Gibson Pickups!It would be a big mistake to assume that all humbuckers sound alike. Truth is, there are a number of Gibson humbucking pickups available, and each one has its own distinctive personality. For "in-your-face" hard rock licks, look no further than the Gibson 500T. The powerful multi-ceramic magnet structure enables this monster to cover lots of territory. It's capable of producing the dark, smoky sound of a classic humbucker with plenty of midrange complexity. But it also has a bit of extra high end sparkle that makes it suitable for just about any style of music you might imagine. Available with double black or black / cream (zebra) open coils, the 500T is designed to sit in the bridge position and it comes with four conductor shielded wiring for series/parallel/split coil variations.
