    If you are leaning toward the 490/498 pups, you can probably find a set with the gold covers (that would have been originally on the guitar) being sold on ebay. You could probably get a pretty good deal. It seems people either love or hate that pairing of pickups so you can take advantage of someone who is not a fan and selling theirs. I happen to be a big fan of those pups. [thumbup]

    good point, imo
    and very true. i love the way they sound when other people play them. i cannot seem to get that same sound from them, and have better success with other pickups. at times, you can get them for insanely good prices if you're patient and quick. like a craig's list trap door spider.

    there is definitely a sweetspot for pickups, i never had any that were all the way one way or the other. i can't imagine why a gibson pickup would need to be that high.
    otoh, he didn't say what he's after, sound-wise. maybe there's some contextual reason for it?
    i tilt mine, (bridge pup) to allow for the difference between the wound and unwound strings. my bridge pup is a fair but higher than my neck pup. but not nearly that high. it could be just me, but i think they have a spot where you get the best all-around sound out of a given pickup. i keep the neck pick up pretty low. it may be all in my mind, but i just have this thing in my head that says i hear more wood when i do this.

    i'm not a giant neil young fan, but there was some pretty cool stuff for sale. in certain items, his taste is reflected. pretty interesting, i thought.

    You should keep it.

    Also as Rabs pointed out, yours has an ebony fingerboard. There are just a couple of modern Gibsons with these now.

    Like the Les Paul Ultima at $8,999

    the above. all the live-long day. you got an ebony board and it looks sweet as helllllll.
    it's a studio. paint it if you want. cover it with my little pony stickers. by modifying it, you won't kill value it doesn't have, the way a more expensive model might. if the guitar feels good in your hands, the looks will grow on you over time.

    edit: i would totally bin that pickguard though
