490's or 57 classics for my Epiphone Lucille?

Recommended Posts


I bought a Epiphone Lucille.

I want to upgrade the pickups. The stock ones arent bad but still have that dull and bassy sound to it that Epiphone pickups seem to have.

I will play stuff like The Cure, Foo Fighters, Rush, Steely Dan. I will play Jazz and Blues too.

I want a pickup that has good definition, string clarity, warm, and sustain and is good for cleans and gain, and some light high gain. Not metal gain. I will get a Les Paul for more high gain and super heavy distortion.

Which would be better? The 490's or the 57 classics? I want to be able to play Jazz too.
