Best Pickups for that classic rock tone?

Recommended Posts

A lot of it is how you dial in your amp/pedals and how you play.


I can get great classic rock tone with either types of pickups (BB PROs or 490r/498t).


Although BB PROs have more high end clarity.


Thank you everyone for the input.


Can someone answer this for me? Is the Burstbucker Pro REALLY BRIGHT? Or is the 498T significantly darker? Because they both sound VERY different. Or is that just me?
