No One Does Tone Like Seymour Duncan!The SH-PG Pearly Gates was originally conceived to conjure tones similar to those of the pickups found in the respected 1959 Les Paul Standard - the guitar that set the standard for Blues guitar tone. And chock-full of tone it is! Described as "sweet, but a little rude," the SH-PG Pearly Gates makes your amp come alive with the perfect blend of sustain and harmonics - not to mention a nice, bright top-end. A multipurpose pickup, the SH-PG Pearly Gates can be paired with virtually any humbucker for a wide range of tonal options.
Seymour Duncan SH-PG Pearly Gates at a Glance:
- Complete setup
The SH-PG Pearly Gates has a tone that can be characterized a warm, with slighter-hotter-than-vintage humbucker out. You've heard the SH-PG on everything from blues to classic and southern rock to modern rock - it's versatility is key to its success. Originally designed as a recreation of the pickups in the '59 Les Paul Standard, the SH-PG mimics the tone that defined the raw, rebellious sound of Texas blues-rock. The Pearly Gates is sweet, but a little rude, with killer sustain and a bright top end that make harmonics jump out of the guitar. It comes with four-conductor hookup cable to facilitate a wide range of pickup-switching options.
The SH-PG Pearly Gates is often used in both neck and bridge positions, and can be used in the bridge with an APH-1 Alnico II Pro in the neck for smoother tones. A Pearly Gates in the neck with an SH-11 Custom Custom works well for heavier rock sounds from the bridge position. The SH-PG Pearly Gates is amazing for brighter toned instruments, and works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. It also works amazing with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.
