Seymour Duncan SH-PG1 Pearly Gates Bridge Humbucker Pickup Black


The SH-PG1b Bridge Pickup is designed to give you the true tone of the legendary Pearly Gates Les Paul. Slightly overwound for a hot output and sparkling top end that characterised the ZZ Top sound and much of the Texas hot blues sound!

Here's what Seymour Duncan say about the SH-PG1b Pearly Gates Bridge Humbucker


Warm, slightly-hotter-than-vintage humbucker. Great for blues, classic rock, southern rock, jam, and hard rock.


Originally designed as a recreation of the pickups in the '59 Les Paul Standard that defined the raw, rebellious sound of Texas blues-rock. The Pearly Gates is sweet, but slightly rude, with great sustain and a bright top end that make harmonics jump out of the guitar. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

Complete setup

Often used in both neck and bridge positions. Can be used in the bridge with an APH-1n Alnico II Pro in the neck for smoother tones; or, a Pearly Gates in the neck with an SH-11 Custom Custom for heavier rock sounds from the bridge position.


For brighter toned instruments. Works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.

Available mods

Nickel or gold-plated cover. Trembucker. Colors (humbucker spacing).
