    Best Blues and Rock Pickup Ever

    I have a PRS DGT guitar that has always sounded really good but there was always a little something missing with it's sound, IMO. I thought I'd try a Pearly in the Bridge wired as a straight humbucker only and man am I ever so happy I did! As a quick note the split coil sounds are OK but I have a great Stratocaster so trying to get those single coil sounds wasn't needed. My PRS now sings very much like an VOS R8 Les Paul with a voice my guitar has never had before, just wonderful! I was actually thinking about getting a LP and now I have a guitar that I would put up against even the most pricey models Gibson has to offer. If you have a mahogany bodied guitar this is the pickup for your Rock and Roll dreams to come true with, IMO naturally.

    Great Pickup!

    This Pickup is amazing just the sound I was looking for!
    I have an epiphone dot with SD 59 on the neck and this on the bridge I mostly play Rhythm and wow it just blows away the stock pickups.
    I play mostly Brit pop but you can play for sure harded stuff its really great for anything that combination with the 59 its just killer.

    Exactly what my Goldtop needed

    Makes my Les Paul sound like a $5000 guitar. Wired both zebra Pearly Gates bridge and nickel covered Pearly Gates neck into my Gibson Les Paul Traditional Goldtop. First noticeable difference was how sweet and clear the clean tones I can get from both pickups in all three positions. They have a destinct, chime with a bell like quality. With my Les Paul wired with quality pots and caps 50's style, I can roll off the volume and tone for a soft tone, or wide open for more presence and punch. Compared to a set of APH-1 Pro II's, they are a bit more rich in harmonics with slightly more breakup under drive. They also have less bass than mentioned set, making them the perfect set for aggressive bues/ rock. Under a high amount of tube distortion via Marshall DSL 100 or modern Peavey solid state, chords retain clarity. They easily cover everything from Classic to Modern rock with the right amp. The only quality I wish they had was a little more bass. Try these pickups in your favorite axe, and I doubt you'll be pulling them out.
