Gibson 490T CC

Humbucker Pickup

Gibson counts the P490 pickups as modern classics, and that is also a great sound description for this well-known part of many modern Gibson guitars. The starting point was the legendary PAF (now available as Classic 57); this one has a bit more upper middle to make it more powerful. Still, with the Alnico 2 magnet, the typical singing sound is always guaranteed. The T version of the P490 has slightly more output power than the T, and is thus ideally suited for the bridge position.

Wonderful bell-like sounds without sludge - the P490 is not a screamer; he sings beauitufully! Comes in chrome-plated cap.

  • The modern equivalent of the Classic 57
  • The 4-wire cable enables different switching versions
  • With Vintage alnico magnets
  • Characteristics: Singing lead sounds and powerful rhythm sounds
  • Colour: Chrome

Great Pickup
Paul6504, 16.05.2015
Made a great replacement for the Bill Lawrence original bridge pickup on my 1989 Les Paul which died many years ago, I originally replaced it with a Seymour Duncan Custom but decided to return the guitar to as near original as possible, sounds just like a good Gibson humbucker should.
