A modern enhancement of a classic tone.

This modern Gibson classic features tonal characteristics similar to the '57 Classic, delivering a slight increase in the upper mids, for a more contemporary humbucking sound. The special Alnico II magnet gives this beauty a singing quality that delivers on demand. The 490R guitar pickup, with its neck-spaced pole pieces, is calibrated to perfectly match the bridge-spaced 490T. It comes with 4-conductor shielded wiring for series/parallel/split coil variations.

  • Similar to the '57 Classic with increase in the upper mids
  • Special Alnico II magnet
  • Calibrated to perfectly match the 490T

The lion's share of your tone comes from your pickups. Go for it today.

Comments about Gibson 490R Original Humbucker Pickup:

Just finished playing now...I mounted this pickup on a Epiphone which I bought as my 2nd guitar and sounded too crappy for my tastes. Now it has a thick and hot sound full of nice basses, but not too dark. Just absolutely wonderful when played on the clean channel. You gotta try it!
