Pearly Gates users out there

Recommended Posts

I recently replaced the bridge pickup in my Goldtop Classic with a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates.

So far I love it, but my neck (496r) pickup is louder and hotter than the bridge now. SO I'm thinking about replacing the neck ,with the neck version of the same. I'm also considering the SH-1 option as well as the Gibson 57 Classic anybody out there with these combos care to share their experiences?

Hey Dude Im a huge fan of the pearly gates. i put it in my Epiphone sheraton and i love it. i matched it with a gibson 57 and it sounds good to me. i think that combo in a goldtop will be great! it will be a very versastle machine!

I have SD Pearly Gates in the neck of my Epi LP and I couldn't be happier. The tones range from smooth and jazzy, bluesy to classic rock. A sweet pu for any LP.

Haha that's funny cause I was just over at GC last weekend and picked up a LP Classic with the same pickup combination..

 

With a 496 in the neck? Or Pearly in the bridge and neck?

I use a Pearly Gate but it is in the neck. The pickup is patented in that position. I get the most amazing tone out of it there. In the bridge I run a Gibson Burstbucker 3. It is equally amazing.
