Pickups in '08 Les Paul Studio

I assume you mean 490/498? Anyway, no need to speculate about this; just look at Gibsons own specs. It says 490R/498T, so I'll believe that

 

I have a brand new LP Studio arriving in a couple of days and will be in a position to confirm this then - that is, if I only knew how to identify Gibson pickups... anyone?

I'm not sure about BBs' date=' but as for my 490/498, there's nothing to identify them other than "Gibson USA".[/quote']

I was afraid of that; looking at lots of pictures of Gibson pickups, I've not seen any ID markings. I don't know if the arrangement of screws and pole pieces seen on the back is anything to go by - probably not. So what we need then is a frequency and phase response profile to capture each pickups fingerprint... but that may be going a bit far.

 

How do folks identify pickups then, other than by listening to them? Perhaps they don't? :-))
