Gibson 490R GH

PickupGibson counts the P 490 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); this one got slightly more high mids, so that it becomes even more assertive. With the alnico 2 magnet, however, the typical singing sound is always guaranteed.

  • Humbucker
  • The modern equivalent to the Classic 57
  • The 4-wire cable enables various switching variants
  • With vintage alnico magnets
  • Sound characteristics: Singing lead sounds and powerful rhythm sounds

10/10

22.01.2017
I bought this pickup in lieu of a Seymour Duncan antiquity for my Epiphone Custom Pro Les Paul and I love it.
It sounds amazing, it feels great, it coil-taps wonderfully, pulls off a brilliant phase shift with a 490T. It's a Gibson pickup, you know exactly what you are in for.
