Overview

A modern enhancement of a classic tone.

This modern Gibson classic features tonal characteristics similar to the '57 Classic, delivering a slight increase in the upper mids, for a more contemporary humbucking sound. The special Alnico II magnet gives this beauty a singing quality that delivers on demand. The 490R guitar pickup, with its neck-spaced pole pieces, is calibrated to perfectly match the bridge-spaced 490T. It comes with 4-conductor shielded wiring for series/parallel/split coil variations.

Features

  • Similar to the '57 Classic with increase in the upper mids
  • Special Alnico II magnet
  • Calibrated to perfectly match the 490T
