Gibson Pickup Question


Recommended Posts

I've been wanting a Gibson Les Paul for a while and frequently look at them online, but, almost all of them have the same pickups and I don't know which is best for what sound out of guitar. I always see somekind of 490, 496 498 or 500. Whats the difference? And what's the difference between ceramic and alnico wires in terms of sound. This would be greatly appreciated.
