Seymour Duncan SH-PGP1B Pearly Gates at a Glance:
- Complete setup
The SH-PGP Pearly Gates pickup has a tone that can be characterized as warm, with a slightly hotter-than-vintage humbucker output. You’ve heard the SH-PGP on everything from blues to classic and southern rock to modern rock, its versatility is the key to its success. Originally designed as a re-creation of the pickups in the ’59 Les Paul Standard, the SH-PGP mimics the tone that defined the raw, rebellious sound of Texas blues-rock. The Pearly Gates pickup is sweet but slightly rude, with great sustain and a bright top end that makes harmonics jump out of the guitar. It comes with a 4-conductor hookup cable to facilitate a variety of pickup-switching options.
The SH-PGP Pearly Gates pickup 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 pickup in the neck with a SH-11 Custom works well for heavier rock sounds from the bridge position. The SH-PGP Pearly Gates pickup is great for brighter-toned instruments and works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. It also works great with hollow and semi-hollowbody guitars.
