Why don't LPJ 2013 pickups have the Gibson USA symbol? (490R 498T)


Recommended Posts

In the first photo the pickups are those of a Gibson Les Paul LPJ 2013. They have not written GIBSON USA, and they seem simpler. They come with a black plastic cover on the front. And in the following 2 photos, as they should be ... In the fourth photo, the guitar mentioned.
Does anyone have information? Thank you.

These were in a budget les Paul model and are visually like an emg style pickup, I am guessing the base plate is different, like in the picture and its cheaper not to imprint a gibson logo into it, so this keeps the cost lower

Try Google to see if there any other photos that match

Thank you for the informations!

Yes, in google searches, most lpj pickups do not have the logo, exactly with the photo. But I also found some that came out right with “Gibson USA” and the plastic cover on the front.

It seems that there is no pattern.
