Gibson 490R DB Humbucker
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 R version of the P490 has slightly less output power than the T, and is thus ideally suited for the neck position. Wonderful bell-like sounds without sludge - the P490 is not a screamer, but he sings all the more beautiful!
