Great Low Output Humbucker - PAF Tone in Spades

I put this into the 2013 Gibson Les Paul Studio that I got from Sweetwater - thanks Ryan Wiltermood! The only thing lacking in that guitar was that the 498T in the bridge was a little too hot and got muddy with high gain.I've had '57's before and really like them, but I decided to try a Tonerider Alnico Classic 2 in the bridge. Alas, the Gibson Quick Connect made that about an impossible job for me so I bought the Quick Connect '57. If you have a newer model, you'd be well-advised to check if it has quick connect before buying another brand than Gibson. This one went right in with no issues whatsoever and is smooth with great articulation. HUGE improvement for the high gain stuff that I play. It's also great for bluesy cleans.For Tone - 5 stars. For Price - 4 stars. Hence, the 4.5 rating. I also have a Tonerider to sell...Oh well, live and learn. Hope this review helps you out.
