Gibson 490R and 498T Humbuckers

Featuring a 498T ''Hot Alnico'' humbucker in the bridge, the Les Paul Studio 2016 HP produces a high output and fierce rhythm tone with detailed dynamics due to the Alnico V magnet construction. Additionally the 490R ''Modern Classic'' neck pickup produces high output, rich sound whilst retaining a crisp and bright tone, perfect for smooth cleans and lead licks. Constructed from Alnico V and Alnico II magnets with 4 conductor wiring, the 490R and 498T humbuckers offer a high output tone with plenty of versatility, perfect for a variety of playing styles.

Tune-O-Matic Bridge

Tune-O-Matic bridges are an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to their stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Additionally adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge. Simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action and screw in or out the bridge saddles to achieve perfect intonation.
