Gibson Accessories 498T Hot Alnico Bridge Pickup

A modern take on the classic Gibson voice

A high-output version of the 490T, Gibson's 498T humbucker combines the more powerful response of an Alnico V magnet with additional matched windings on each coil, which puts the emphasis on the pickup's upper midrange frequencies for enhanced crunch and sustain. The 498T is perfect for any hard rock application, easily overdriving amplifiers for a beefy, sizzling output that boosts any guitar's power and presence.

The pole pieces on the 498T are also aligned a little further apart to accommodate the spacing of the strings at the bridge, which is different than the spacing of the strings at the neck. This aids in producing powerful leads and thick rhythm without sacrificing single-note definition. The 498T features shielded, four-conductor wiring for series, parallel or split coil operation, and is fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of microphonic feedback.

Gibson Accessories 496R Hot Ceramic Neck Pickup

Introduced in the early 1970s, Gibson's 496R pickup fills the need for a more powerful humbucker and helped energize the emergence of hard rock and heavy metal.

As the musical landscape changed from the world-shaking rockabilly of Scotty Moore in the 1950s, to the bone-crunching rock of Jimmy Page in the 1970s, so did the development of the humbucker pickup.

 

With its powerful ceramic magnet, the 496R delivers incredible sustain and cutting power, adding more highs and increased definition without producing any muddiness at all. Leads played on this pickup will have a biting, bluesy edge with incredible sustain and a notable increase in musical harmonics.

 

When used in conjunction with a ceramic bridge pickup such as the 500T, the 496R loses none of its incredible definition. The 496R features neck–spaced pole pieces and shielded, four–conductor wiring for series, parallel or split coil operation. It is also fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of microphonic feedback.
