My 21 year-old came with the stock 496R/500T combination as pickups. I always wondered if Gibson intended these pups for high gain use only. I used them for 3 years and was adjusting them constantly in trying to get a workable tone and finally went to lower wound Duncan '59's. I still have the stock ceramics; should I ever decide to sell this Classic. Is anyone successfuly using their stock ceramics in a Les Paul these days. There must be a few advocates of them around after all of these years.
