Amazing pickup

Comments about Gibson 498T Alnico Humbucker:

I was given an Epihone Les Paul JR., signed by Les Paul himself, as a gift. Ii use it to play slide guitar since the action is very high. I decided to replace the crappy pickup with a 498T Alnico pickup (along with Tuning pegs that actually keep the guitar in tune). Now the guitar sounds amazing. The pickup just screams. I love this pickup. It sounds crisp and clear and when I turn up the Gain on my amp (a Marshall 15 whatt MG) it sounds perfect. Buy this pickup now. You will sure be glad you did.
