Gibson 490 pickups?


Recommended Posts

curious as to how much and where you picked them up, im looking everywhere but am a lil scared of used because i cannot identify them to be sure im being told the truth of the model...


YES MY 498t was 14 - something and my 490r was 8 something too That is normal.


ref: the guitar player repair guide Dan Erlewine



Adding: I still have the magnet from the 498t, if i swap it with the one in the 490t will i be basically turning the 490t into a 498t? Or the coils are wound more on one than the other, id imagine?
