    I have a pair of 500T pickups that came in a Les Paul I just got, and I'm looking for something with a little less gain. I'm specifically looking for a 498T or a 490T or both. Let me know if you have something you'd wanna trade! :)

    Have you considered swapping the magnets? I have a set of 500T's with A4 magnets and they are excellent. There's lots of info online about swapping magnets in humbuckers. There are some guys on the Seymour Duncan forums who do it all the time. I did the swap myself and it was pretty easy. I got the magnets here: http://www.addiction-fx.com/gallery1.htm
