2018 USA SG Pickups 61R, 61T


Recommended Posts


I've searched for the answer to this question but I've come up short.

I have a 2018 USA SG and it came with 61R and 61T pickups. Does anybody know definitively what magnets are in the 2018 pickups?

Tons of posts out there about the 61's  " 61's are like ...  

I'm trying to find out what they are.

Apparently Gibson is not currently selling these pickups as accessories, so I was not able to find any specs on the Gibson site.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Did you see this article from GC

61R and 61T

In the early ’60s, Gibson began incorporating stronger Alnico V magnets on its humbuckers. The 61R/T set uses these for great effect. They have added power, top end and bite.
