It does have the 490"s and I'm not too keen on them as this set is fairly microphonic and don't really like the darker tone.May I ask? Does that SG CUSTOM BAD-A$$ have the 490 pickup's in it ? I was waiting for GIBSON CUSTOM Shop to make a Lester or SG CUSTOM w/CUSTOMBUCKER's .....for quite a while......since 2012....and FINALLY, in mid-2019 GIBSON made an EXCLUSIVE for ZZZOUNDS dot com w/CUSTOMBUCKERS......imma sure your SG CUSTOM is a BEAST as well, those SG's just look so BAD-A$$ w/DC Diamond Headstock In-Lays...OOH BABY !!!.........'REX' the Lester CUSTOM Black-Beauty has the same specs as the '68 CUSTOM Re-Issue so it was definitely worth the wait....
IDK maybe Imma just a li'l too picky BUT IDTS....... for my CUSTOM shop $$$$ I cant bring myself to be buying GIBSONS cheapest pickup's on a $4,000.00++++ Guitar.
Personally, I prefer 57 Classics/Classic Plus because they cover a lot of territory and have always been well potted. I have a set of 57's here in gold and have been debating whether or not to put them in this Custom or sell this guitar and swap everything over to Gold on my Black 61 reissue.
I enjoy the look of a blinged out Custom but prefer the necks on the 61s.
