    Don't.

    The problem with this pickup is that it is a cheap mass produced one. The only positives are that it is relatively cheap and sounds ok clean. Otherwise it's horrendously muddy and clangy. How anyone could like it is beyond me. I experimented extensively with the height of it, trying in vain to get a good tone from it but I was wasting my time. Spend a bit more and get the 57 classic, which is better by a country mile. Stay away from the 490R.
