    I wanted to share this side-by-side comparison video I made of the stock gibson 498/490 pickups and my new Brandonwound 59 humbucker set. Enjoy!

    I'd take the Gibsons, brighter and clearer...maybe those customs have too much potting?

    After a couple months of playing, I'm actually really loving the sound of the neck position! I like the sound of the bridge position BW but I think it sounds too bright to me. I may switch back to the stock bridge pickup with my next string change
