    Been playing for 31 yrs now, its how I express myself best

    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.

    Amazing low output humbucker

    I have a Gibson SG with one of these in the bridge possion. WOW its such a dynamic Humbucker, you can here every string !!!! It has a wide range of tones anything from Jazz to Heavy Rock, and is very easy to EQ. If you are looking for a low output pickup try a guitar with one of these bad boys.
