Devised to deliver Alnico tone in a small package, the Pearly Gates for Strat has two slightly overwound coils hugging an Alnico II magnet for raunchy Hard Rock and Blues.
At 11.4k in the bridge and 9.8k in the neck/middle, these are the perfect pickups for true grit.
Application: Strat single coil route
We are passionate about quality so we ask for your patience while we craft your pickup. Depending on the nature of your order, it may take up to six weeks for delivery.

I ordered these and have a set of PG Humbuckers in a 1960 RI Les Paul. I also have MJ/SD wound Antiquities and SH-18's in 2 other Les Paul's. They all are great and...
The Strat version somehow retains some of that classic Strat sound when needed and drives the amp when needed as well. I have a "blender" rig on my Strat so the tones you get are just multiplied with these pickups. I would recommend to anyone who's looking to beef up their tone with a multitude of sounds

I have used Seymour Duncan pickups for many years and have them in all of my guitars. Recently, I bought a Texas Roadhouse Strat with cream colored pickups. I wanted to get a Pearly Gates that would match the existing color of the pickups in the guitar, so I called the Custom shop and they advised me to go with a parchment color. The one I recieved was nowhere near the same color, in fact it was white. Rather than complain, I installed it and changed the covers on the other pickups to match. The sound is amazing! I have used JBs and Customs over the years and the Pearly Gates has been added to my list of favorite pickups. The only complaint I have is that it's not the right color and I wish there was a way to correct the problem.
