The fix I needed
I have a 2013 Gibson Les Paul Sig. T that I bought from Sweetwater on 10-16-13.
The guitar was great in most ways, it came with the 57 and 57+ pickups that just didn't have the heat I wanted. I had to push the Marshall amp to high gain to almost satisfy my needs.
I did enjoy the clean sound of the 57's and didn't want to loose that tone, I was afraid that the 498T may be to hot.
I found that the 498T answered all of my needs by way of heat and awesome cleans as well.
I now can back off the gain on the amp and get very powerful tones that are articulated and very controllable with the heat that I wanted and cleans that shimmer.
This is a perfect combo of both worlds.
