What are 59 Les Paul Reissue Pickups?


Recommended Posts

I posted this question over on The Gear Page, but thought I should ask it here as well. 

The dealer sheet for my 1989 ES-175 lists the pick-ups as "59 Reissue Pickups."  Do you all think these are 490T/498R? The neck measures at 7.34 ohms and the bridge at 9.2 ohms and have a patent number stamped baseplate. I do not believe they are Bill Lawerence HB1 "circuit board" pups. And even though the guitar was built in early-89, I believe this is still too late to have Shaw pups. Does that mean in all likelihood they're 490T/498R? Any thoughts? Thanks.
