  • What's your favorite Gibson stock pickup?

    I know alot hate the Gibson 500T but I personally like it for hard rock and metal.  The 498T is another one I've grown to really like.  Don't have alot of experience with the Burstbuckers, 57 Classics, etc..

    I love the 500t in my lp's. still sound like a classic humbucker but just hotrodded and not flubby. They have enough balls to push the old Marshall's and fenders I use into overdrive. 498t and 490t for my next favorite. I just got a dirty fingers in for my lp custom but haven't had time wit it yet.

      Totally agree!! Love my 57's in my customs, and studio LP's.


      500t is decent pickup. 498, can take or leave it.
