I have a new Epi Sheraton coming my way shortly and I'm planning on upgrading the pickups and adding a wiring system like the Jimmy Page wiring setup. (I will give the stock pups a chance, however)
With that said, I already have a Gibson 498T zebra pup with 4-conductor wiring that I bought a while back for no particular reason. I was thining of using that pickup in the bridge position... what do you all think? Will that be too hot for a semi-hollow? What would you recommend I pair it with?
I was thinking of a '59 in the neck, or possibly a Gibson 57 Classic. Do you think either of those would place nice with the 498t? Maybe I should look for a 490r?
