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. The "Modern Classic" Series from Gibson features tonal characteristics that are similar to the company's popular '57 Classic, but with a slight increase in the upper midrange. It's 100% pure humbucker, but with a modern edge that delivers a more contemporary tonal range that's perfect for almost any style of music. The 490R, with its neck spaced pole pieces, is perfectly calibrated to match the 490T, which is spaced for the bridge position. Both employ Alnico II magnets for a super smooth frequency response. This one comes with a chrome plated pickup cover.

Great product at great prices

I ordered the 490r and a 498 from sweetwater and they have great prices and very helpful and friendly customer service.

Blues, Blues, and more Blues

This came in the neck postion of my SG standard. I was amazed by it's tonal clarity. If you are looking for that perfect clean bluesy sound,look no further. It is not for heavy metal,works ok if your trying to do a "Slash" sound. BUT UT SHINES FOR CRISTAL CLEAR BLUES.
