Pearly Gates SH-PG1B

Warm, slightly-hotter-than-vintage humbucker. Great for blues, classic rock, southern rock, jam, and hard rock.

Originally designed as a recreation of the pickups in the '59 Les PaulĀ® 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.

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

Available Mods:
Nickel or gold-plated cover. Trembucker. Colors (humbucker spacing).

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

Magnet type: alnico 2 bar, D.C. Resistance 7.3k-neck, 8.35k-bridge
