Seymour Duncan SHPG1 Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup

Designed to replicate the raw tone of the '59 Les Paul humbuckers, this pickup delivers great sustain and bright harmonics.

Originally designed as a recreation of the pickups in the '59 Les Paul Standard that defined the raw, rebellious sound of Texas blues-rock. The Pearly Gates is sweet, but slightly rude, with great sustain and a bright top end that make harmonics jump out of the guitar. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

Complete setup: Often used in both neck and bridge positions. Can
be used in the bridge with an APH-1n Alnico II Pro in the neck for smoother tones; or, a Pearly Gates in the neck with an SH-11 Custom Custom for heavier rock sounds from the bridge position.

Guitars: For brighter toned instruments. Works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.

Players: Dickey Betts (neck & bridge), Warren Haynes/ Gov't Mule (neck & bridge), Howard Leese / Heart (neck & bridge), Greg Martin / Kentucky Headhunters (neck & bridge)

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
I replaced the pickups in my P.R.S. S.C.250 with a set of Pearly Gates.The tone I get from them is well worth the money,and the output is about twice the amount I was getting from the factory pickups.Now I can really nail that Santana tone,and the notes just sustain as long as I need them to.Great addition to my P.R.S.I'm thinking about putting a set in my two Mcarty Hollow bodies.
Great choice.
Ease of Use
The only amps I play are Fender tube amps that have been retubed with Ruby Tubes,and a Mesa Boogie.They are a perfect match.
