Gibson P-498T GC

Hot Alnico PickupGibson 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.

  • Humbucker with vintage alnico magnets
  • Hotter version of a vintage pickup for warmer lead sound

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
