Comments about Gibson 496R Hot Ceramic Humbucker:

I've always been a big fan of Page and Slashs' riffs, and if U want to achieve that tone like on "Sweet Child O' Mine" this is the way to go. Pair this w/ the Gibson 500T and you've got the ultimate sound for classic rock or heavy metal. That is also the same pickup set used by James Hetfield of Metallica on their first three albums. So you're looking' at some serious versatility w/ this pickup and the 500T. I'm putting them both in my Epiphone LP and I would recommend the same for anyone who wants the sound tbut doesn't have the cash flow for a Gibson guitar.
