Gibson P-498T CC

PickupThe 498T is the hotter version of a vintage pickup with a higher internal resistance and higher power output. The 498T has an average sound character when compared with the 490T, and is therefore preferably used for the bridge position; especially when the player wants to generate warm and singing lead sounds. The 498T has a vintage Alnico magnet and is used by Gibson for Les Paul Studios, Les Paul Standards and Les Paul Custom guitars in the bridge position.

  • This pickup equipped with vintage Alnico magnets is the hotter version of a vintage pickup

Great rock-metal Pickup!

Ignat, 02.06.2017
I installed this one in my Gibson LP Custom'76. Previous pickup was Gibson 490T, but it sounds a little bit flat with hi-gain. But now with 498T it's really screams. Good clarity, powerful sound, great mids. Stunning pickup for rock/metal!

Gibson Quality

Bopmarty, 02.03.2018
I bought this pickup and the Gibson 490R CC Humbucker Pickup for my Ibanez ES50 (1982) This is a great combination and it has basically turned my guitar into a Gibson! The most noticeable thing is the richness and quality of the sound. I'm playing better because of it. I have also wired the pickups to work as single coils which has opened up a seemingly endless amount of sound and tone variations. I have every sound I've been looking for in one guitar. I also replaced the electrics, potentiometers, capacitors etc. with Gibson parts. I'm not sure how much this has helped to improve the sound but my guess is it has. (no comparison) Certainly worth the outlay.
