Gibson P-498T GC

70

Hot Alnico Pickup

Gibson counts the P 498 pickups to the modern classics, which is also a good sound description for these parts known from many current Gibson guitars. The starting point was the legendary PAF (now available as Classic 57); thanks to the alnico magnets, the P498 also provides a warm singing sound, which due to its higher output and an emphasis on the treble and midrange, is very assertive.

Get a Gibson Les Paul Custom sound
Bernard Shakey 06.12.2017
I bought both this pickup and the 490R for bridge and neck positions respectively. They are the pickups currently used in Gibson's Les Paul Customs so seemed a logical choice in deciding to upgrade my Epiphone Les Paul Custom.
I also like that they offer a PAF-like sound but with more warmth due to the extra midrange. Additionally they can be adapted for coil tapping unlike the 57 classics
The pickups come in a very tasteful perspex box and a diagram with wiring instructions is included

The nest pick ups
Sound of the Suburbs 01.06.2018
These Gibson pick ups sound amazing in my Les Paul. These are the best pick ups money can buy. Only a Gibson pick ups sounds like a Gibson. Everything else is just a copy. This is the real deal.
