Anyone recognize this pickup?


Recommended Posts

The pole screws are located in the row of holes spaced wider saying it's a "T" pickup with bridge spacing. The most likely types are 490T with AlNiCo 2 magnet and 498T with an AlNiCo 5. Measuring DC resistance will help in finding out; the 490T should read around 8...9 kOhms while the 498T has 13...14 kOhms.


Hope this helps.
