Pickups

The 490R and 490T pickups are the modern equivalents to the '57 Classic pickups. The 490s have a 4-wire connector cable with which different switching variants are possible (coil-split, serial, parallel).

The 490R and 490T have different spacings between the pins to provide better balance to the increasing string spacing towards the bridge. Both pickups feature vintage Alnico magnets. The 490R is installed in most Gibson guitars as the neck pickup, and is often combined with the 490T or 498T.

  • Humbucker
  • Characteristics: Singing lead sounds, strong rhythm sounds
  • Colour: Chrome

490R CC Humbucker Pickup

JoeF, 20.05.2013
The 490R CC Humbucker Pickup is a neck pick up that goes really well with the rockier spectrum of music, after getting them and opening them up the quality of these pups was obvious - sturdy, well built and trust worthy, i wouldn't expect anything less from a Gibson product! They were easy to fit, fell straight into place on my Epiphone Firebird, plugged it in and turned it up and the result was astounding! the beautiful warm cleans and thick dirty distorted sounds that were ringing out of my previously dull Firebird blew me away, it sounded like a completely new guitar worth far more than its original cost, if your looking to upgrade your pups to find a great 'gibsonesk' sound then look no further, these are really, really great pick ups!

Great Gibson sound

James3810, 11.01.2015
This pickup has gone into my Epiphone Les Paul and it has transformed the instrument for me. I enjoyed playing the Epiphone, great feel on the neck, stays in tune, beautiful finish. But now the sound of the instrument has come alive, having much more 'presence' than before, and clarity. I recommend this pickup highly!
