Clearly Gibson

29.07.2016
I needed a modern 4-conductor humbucker, with a Gibson tone to match a 490R. It was used in a multi-switched, coil-tapped, phase-reversible and series-switched, wiring configuration on a Les Paul fitted with a Floyd Rose. It replaced a very high output pickup which left the guitar difficult to control and with relatively poor tone.

I used it with 500k volume and tone pots and a 0.022 uF tone capacitor as the basis for the switched wiring setup.

In use the pickup delivers a clear and warm Gibson sound with a little more output than a traditional PAF. Rolling back the volume a little quickly brings it back into more traditional territory. It has excellent lead cut and power and is very well balanced with the 490R. The multi switched tonal variations available make the guitar capable of producing a huge range of tones suited to rock, blues funk or fusion. Immensely versatile and I am really pleased I chose this option.

Flawless!

22.01.2017
I bought this instead of a Seymour Duncan Antiquity and I did not regret it in the slightest. It sounds amazing, plays amazing, cleans up amazing, even does coil taps amazingly.
Running it in my Epiphone Custom Pro LP and there are no regrets, I love it.
It's a Gibson, so you know exactly what to expect.
