    This is a happy costumer.

    I bought a cheap used Fernandes retro rocket HSS guitar. And put the Pearly Gate in the bridge and sounds amazing. I'm very pleased with just this one pickup. If it's good enough for Billy Gibbons it's good enough for me. If your looking for that tone then you should get this pickup.

    Best so far

    I have several other guitars, mostly DiMarzio. And they do their job well. 6 months ago I bought a Texas Special (used) Strat with stock Gates and I haven't put the guitar down since. Warm, bluesy tone. Not high output, but it takes you right to the edge. Is it the best pickup for EVERY guitar? Probably not. But for the Strat I can only testify.

    Perfect for blues/rock/pop!

    Installed this Pearly Gates humbucker to replace the stock bridge pickup in my PRS SE semi-hollow guitar. The improvement in tone and responsiveness is simply amazing! I don't normally experiment with pickups, but I'm really glad I did. This pickup puts out a very focused (all the desirable overtones without any of the muddy ones) and expressive voice that overdrives in a very musical way. For the styles I play with this guitar - blues, classic rock and pop - this pickup fits perfectly.

    Sweet sounding humbucker

    Replaced an old super distortion x2n pickup in my '78 Strat with the Pearly Gates. This is a very sweet sounding pickup with rich harmonics and great sustain. not too over the top, Definitely adds a subtle warm rich tone to this guitar and has given my classic Strat a whole new life. I had not played this guitar in several years, now i won't put it down. I play in a cover band doing mostly 70s to now rock and a bit of country.

    Pearly Gates are Heavenly

    This is the best PAF style bridge pup I've ever used, hands down.
    It chimes without twang (that's a first), and it is clear and sharp under gain, without breakup. Not too ballsy, and not too thin.Great pup for a Les Paul or an SG.
