How can I identify the 490t pickup?  


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I'm using Google's translator.  I am buying a used 490t pickup.  The seller told me that he is sure that it is the 490t, he said it has a T (treble) on the base, and has a low DC resistance (around 8 kohms).  

If I'm not mistaken, there are only two Gibson pickups with DC resistance of around 8 kohms.  They are the 57 Classic (and variants) and the 490t, but these two pickups are different at the back.  

In other words, I conclude that the pickup that I am going to buy is really the 490t. What do you say?

See the picture from the pickup that I will buy.
