Overview

The original custom Pearly Gates pickups were wound for the famous '59 Les Paul Standard that defined the raw, rebellious sound of Texas blues rock. Essentially a variation on the Patent Applied For sound, Seymour Duncan's Pearly Gates sound sweet, but is slightly rude, with great sustain and a bright top that make harmonics jump out of the guitar.

Great Pickups

By Michael

from London, OH

I have a modern tele special that I put the Pearly Gates in on the bridge along with a Seymour Duncan Standard Strat Stack in the middle and a Dimarzio True Velvet T in the neck. The Gates along with the other pickups added a new dimension to the guitar. I have the best of both worlds keeping the true tele sound and when I want to get rockin I flip down to the Gates and the Strat Stack. Now I have a real variety of sounds that I never got out of the stock pickups. Right now I have a mini toggle giving me the option to split the Pearl Gates but I plan on getting a mini toggle on/on/on switch so I can split/series/parallel the pickup.

bright for a semi hollow body but controllable

By Timothy

from Las Vegas

I had to wrap the tape with electrical tape cause I was getting fuzz sound and squelch. But now it's legit as hell. Love it. It's super bright but very controllable with a twist of the tone knob. Super awesome sound.

It's pearly gates...what more can I say?

By Jemile

from orlando fl

I use this in the neck position, along with a whole lotta humbucker in the bridge. This combo is light years beyond the original pickups in the guitar (1960 LP reissue). I run it through either a Bogner or Marshall tube amp. All i can say is WOW!!!!! Worth the investment PERIOD!!!

Perfect Balance

By ED

from Petaluma CA

This Pickup is outstanding and probably the best humbucking neck pickup I've ever heard. It is tonally balanced from the highs to the lows and the bass does not turn to a mud puddle when distorted and pushed hard. Every note is delightfully distinct yet amazingly hot when distorted.

Perfect

By David Schore

from Los Angeles, CA

This is the second guitar that I've installed a pearly gates at the bridge and it's just awesome! This pickup delivers the crisp smooth tone that you would expect from any Seymour Duncan pickup. It has great sustain, and catches all the harmonics perfectly. This pick up is a great mod to any guitar, and it works great with a combination of other Seymour Duncan pickups.

Excellent replacement pup

By Michael Guadagno

from Orlando, FL

The Pearly Gates are excellent pickups for classic rock/hard rock and blues players. Since it's a copy of the pickups in Billy Gibbons' famous 1959 Les Paul, one can expect the PAF style of sound: great warmth, sounds good clean, sounds fantastic with distortion. The output is slighter higher than a vintage PAF, but this is still a low output pickup. This isn't a good choice for metal heads. Metal heads are better off with the Seymour Duncan JB series that Matthias Jabs endorses.

Great Improvement!

By Dan

from I'm not telling you

I got this pickup for my epiphone g-400 limited edition, because the stock pickups just weren't loud enough to keep up with the high volume of my band. After installing this pickup, I immediately noticed a difference when played through my Marshall AVT-150... It has been nothing but perfect so far, definitely the pickup to go with if you play anything from rock to blues.

Perfection and nothing sure

By Garrett

from Pittsburgh Pa

I took the pickups out of my Les Paul Custom and put this in the neck. I put a different seymour duncan in the bridge. This guitar has a wonderful warm quality with a great distortion and high end. This is a great pick up and there is a reason they are the choice of the pros. I mean its pet-agree and its users are enough to choose but when you hear it you know you choice was right. If you are looking for rock pick ups dont thing about twice. Buy these pick ups

wake up for a les paul..

By Richard

from Las Vegas, NV

I threw one of these in the neck of my epi les paul and it sounds fantastic. I get nice, warm, bluesy-paf tones from this rather clean or slightly driven. It works really well for classic or southern rock as well. The ONLY reason I gave it a 4 is because, c'mon, 100 bucks?! really?! The price is outrageous, there are dimarzio pickups that sound just as good for 2/3 the price. But I do love the pickup.

Amazed

By Adam M.

from Southfield, MI

I purchased an Epiphone Les Paul many years ago and had been foolishly playing with the stock pickups for all these years. Now that my income has increased I decided to indulge and purchased a standard black bridge pearly gates pickup. This pickup is an absolute monster! The sustain is incredible and the cripness of each string plucked brings chills to my body every time. It works great for clean, crunch, distorted, and whatever else you want to throw at it. Looking to purchase a neck pickup to match now. Thank you Seymour Duncan for making great gear!
