Pearly Gates Humbucker

The Pearly Gates humbucker is essentially a variation on the PAF: to make the Texas attitude of Billy Gibbons and ZZ Top rougher, the Pearly Gates offers a little more "edge". It sounds snappy in comparison to the '59 and has more output and sustain. A great classic for the bridge position. For an absolutely authentic look, this pickup also comes in "zebra", with one coil in black, the other cream-coloured!

  • Bridge position
  • Texas attitude with sizzle in the upper frequency range
  • Rough, overtone-rich sound with lots of sustain
  • The sound of ZZ Top
  • Colour: Zebra (black/cream)

Well impressed with this pickup. Installed it into a USA Charvel San Dimas Lacewood (custom shop made) Super strat to replace the neck pickup which was too hot. Sounds awesome with more clarity than I expected.

Recommended!

Good bang for buck

Put this in the bridge of a strat - sounds great, plenty of power and adds a nice midrange. Sounds great clean and with gain. Very pleased ,and the usual great service from thomann.

Let me tell you right away, this little thing is a tone monster! Based on the actual pickups found on Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) 1959 Gibson Les Paul "Pearly Gates", this neck humbucker pickup with nickel cover just cuts the sound off of ZZ Tops first couple of albums straight away. And the tonal range is fantastic - from that juicy, bluesy Texas sound to funky jazz. It goes all the way. Combine it with the Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates bridge pickup, or something hotter, and you have a real rock n roll tone monster in your hand.
I was really curious about the Seymour Duncan Pearly gates pickups and bought me a pair (both the neck and bridge pickups) and installed them on a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Standard. The first time I plugged in my custom made "Pearly Gates" through the clean channel of my little Fender Super Champ X2, it just blew me away. Add an overdrive pedal in front of that and it takes you right back to that early 1970'ies Texas blues. I am super impressed by the range of sounds these pickups make.
