Gibson Accessories 498T Hot Alnico 5 Humbucker - Bridge - Zebra
Why We Love This Product!
Hot Gibson Humbucking Tone!
It would be a big mistake to assume that all humbuckers sound alike. Truth is, there are a number of Gibson humbucking pickups available, and each one has its own distinctive personality. The "Modern Classic" Series from Gibson features tonal characteristics that are similar to the company's popular '57 Classic, but with a slight increase in the upper midrange. It's 100% pure humbucker, but with a modern edge that delivers a more contemporary tonal range that's perfect for almost any style of music. Start with a basic Gibson humbucker, drop a a little hotter Alnico V magnet into a specially wound coil combination and you have the 498T "Hot Alnico" pickup. With a frequency response that favors the upper midrange and high end, coupled with a high output, this is the perfect rock guitar pickup. This one has black and cream "zebra" coils and no cover.
