Gibson 490T Humbucker Pickup

No longer available at zZounds
Give your guitar a classic sound with these humbucker pickups. These "modern classic" pickups have tonal characteristics similar to the Gibson '57 Classic.

These "Modern Classic" pickups feature tonal characteristics similar to the '57 Classic, but deliver a slight increase in the upper mids, for a more contemporary humbucking sound. The special Alnico II magnet gives these beauties a singing quality that delivers on demand.

The 490R, with its neck-spaced pole pieces, is calibrated to match the bridge-spaced 490T for a perfect match. Available with chrome, gold, or nickel covers, or with open coils, the 490R and 490T come with 4-conductor shielded wiring.

- Output: 8.1
- Position: Bridge
- Magnet: Alnico II
- Wiring: 4-Conductor
- Slightly overwound to give a traditional Humbucker tone with a touch of modern edge
