Seymour Duncan based the Pearly Gates Humbuckers on the humbuckers in the 1959 single cutaway Standard. That's to say they sound sweet and warm with a slightly higher than vintage output making it perfect for Classic Rock and Blues tones.
Perfect when paired with the bridge position Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker.
Here's what Seymour Duncan say about the Pearly Gates Neck 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 single cutaway 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.
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.
Nickel or gold-plated cover. Trembucker. Colors (humbucker spacing).
