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. When you want a smokin' neck pickup with incredible sustain and plenty of punch, may we suggest you try the 496R "Hot Ceramic." You'll be amazed at how the ceramic magnet adds more highs with increased definition but without any muddiness. From big, fat power chords to screaming lead lines that ooze with attitude, the 496R is unlike any other humbucker in the Gibson line. This one comes with black and cream "zebra" coils and no pickup cover.

What Does "Special Order" Mean?

A special-order product is one that we don't normally keep in stock. We order it from the manufacturer as soon as you order from us. We have great relationships with all the manufacturers we carry, so we can get your special order to you as fast as or faster than anyone else. Remember that special orders are non-returnable and non-cancelable, so make sure the item is right for you. A Sweetwater Sales Engineer can help you decide — call (800) 222-4700 for assistance!

Touch the soul

This baby will rock your world!!The clean or distorted tones in humbucker or split modes reach rite in and tugs on my heart strings.This pickup is articulated and controllable, it has the heat when needed and it cleans up beautifully.I replaced the 57 with the 496R and it worked for me, no regrets at all.
Music background: Been playing for 31 yrs, its how I express myself best.
