My Gibson SG Standard came with them. Are they generally considered great, pretty good, or not so much? Any opinions?
^^^Yep, I concur. They came in a slab bodied Gibson Les Paul Special I have, and they sound wonderful and mean when I want them to. I'm thinking they would sound equally good in an SG. Gibson definitely does pickups well.I had them in my Special, it was one of the best sounding guitars I ever owned. By comparison I had a USA PRS I swapped about a zillion pickups out of before I found the right set.
In my opinion, pickups are one of the things Gibson does right - I barely ever feel the need to put new pickups in one.
Gibson 498T - 490R is one of the best combo, the 490T is not enough powerfll IMHO.
