OVERVIEW

Gives you that old school Texas blues-rock sound.

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

This Pearly Gates Sets make it easier than ever to grab yourself a slice of that famous Texas Tone. While the starting point for the Pearly Gates was a vintage PAF from one of the most famous (and most expensive) guitars to come out of Texas, it adds a bump in the output and high end, making this set perfect for harder blues and classic rock styles.

FEATURES
  • Magnet type: alnico 2 bar
  • D.C. Resistance 7.3k (neck), 8.35k (bridge)

Sweet Pickup Set

By Agent 76

from Hanamura

Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

I bought a pair of Pearly Gates with nickel covers and another with zebra coils. I think the Pearly Gates set is one of the best sets you can put in a Les Paul or SG. I havent heard them in something like an Ibanez or H/H Strat so I wont comment. I can tell you that they mesh really well with set neck, mahogany body guitars. These pickups sing.

Cons

Best Uses

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

    These pickups sound like what you think of when you think of the PAF sound from the 60s and 70s in blues and rock. They have a vintage, warm, bright clean tone and sound better the more gain you give them. If you are here looking at Duncans these are worth your time to check out.

    Amazing pickups

    By Nolo

    from Houston, Texas

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

    Bought the Pearly Gate set to install on my Ibanez AF55 hollow body. This guitar had so much potential at its buying price tag but lacked that little extra ummpphh! (You know what I mean?) I wanted something that delieverd a blues tone that also had some bite and could compliment the warm tones of the guitars acoustics. Seymour Duncan delivered all this plus more. When I picked up my guitar from my local guitar shop, everyone in the shop wanted to know who owned "that" Ibanez. Everyone was amazed by the sound of the Pearly Gates and where passing my guitar around like a cheap ....(well you know what I mean). People did not believe me how much my Ibanez cost me because everyone loved the sound and even more when it was plugged in, people where surprised when I told them that the pickups cost me half of what I spent on the guitar. Needless to say I'm buying another set of Pearly Gates, Seymour Duncan delivered good on their product.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

        Holy Howl! I've been wanting a set of these for a while. Why did I wait? Put them in my Ibanez AS73L and it went from a good guitar to a great guitar! Improved harmonics, sound quality, tone and soul. If you want to unleash your guitar for more driven blues, country, rock or metal these are the pickups you want. I play all these genres and there is nothing these Seymour Duncans can't handle.
