Really Good

By Mtl Guitarist97

from Westbury, New York

Comments about Gibson 498T Alnico Humbucker:

This pickup is a great pickup. It is really trebly though, so it is pretty good for pinch harmonics. It came loaded in my Gibson Les Paul Studio. This is one of Gibson's best pickups. It is extremely versatile and goes great with hi-gain amps/distortion pedals. I play a lot of metal/hard rock with this pickup but it could probably be used for country or jazz. It doesn't have the greatest clean sound but if you use it with a good amp it can get great distorted sounds. If you're looking for a great clean or vintage pickup maybe try a Burstbucker or a Seymour Duncan SH1.

big difference!

By Ron

from downers grove, illinois

Comments about Gibson 498T Alnico Humbucker:

I installed this pickup in the bridge position of my Gibson sg faded special. I play alot of Black Sabbath and the original 490T that came in the guitar wasnt quite cutting it. Now, with the new 498T in my guitar it really woke up. Now I have the growl and increased mid's that I needed to get me the sound I was looking for. I think this is the way the Sg special's should come from the factory!

perfect pickup

Comments about Gibson 498T Alnico Humbucker:

I have a Gibson SG goddess with a 490r and 498t in it. the 498t is perfect for a distorted sound, and for a clean, crisp sound. it has astounding, soaring highs, brash, in-your-face mids, and that bottom thunk that really finishes it off. Its a high-output so it is really loud compared to any single coil. It sounds almost exactly like the 500t, so pairing them together isnt a great idea. I highly recommend it.

Worth the money

By thegigman0

from Raliegh

Comments about Gibson 498T Alnico Humbucker:

I put this pickup in the neck position of my Epiphone Les Paul standard. This pickup is excellent for metal and hard rock. It's also good for thrash metal, but not good for a cleaner sound. It pairs excellent with a 500T.
