Hello everyone

I just bought a 1989 Gibson Les Paul Standard.
This guitar comes with paf humbuckers but i can't figure out which model they are. Could be the "59 Reissue Pickups"?
Thank you

Daniele

Daniele,

The 1989 Gibson Les Paul Standard was issued with a pair of covered humbucker (490R/498T) pickups.

If those depicted were installed after-market, then God only knows what they might be.

Do they sound good, or is there something wrong with the way they respond to your playing?
I guess I am asking what does the exact pedigree of pickup even matter, if the pickups sound great....

:)
