Gibson Modern P490T Bridge nickel · Electric Guitar Pickup

If you choose a Gibson humbucker, you buy from the manufacturer, who invented the Humbucker in 1955. The same producer, who had been winding pickups since 1935 and was the first to use Alnico magnets and adjustable pole pieces in pickups. The quality claim of Gibson borders on obsession, to the point that they produce their own magnets to ensure that all values are coherent. The pickups are waxed and the Pole Shoes (these are the metal tubes in which the pole pieces sit) are narrowly fitting to avoid any microphony.

The 490T is a hotter version of the '57 Classic. The pole pieces are placed on the bridge according to the string spacing. It can be found in the SG Special or Flying V Faded 3 - Pickup.
