  • New pickup for my sg! (pearly gates)

    Hey guys I was out at guitar center yesterday, to buy an eq pedal, when they didnt have it in stock. I realized my amps never gunna sound good with any pedal i put in front of it.

    I decided to buy a new pickup for my sg, and i chose the Pearly gates(bridge).

    Im wondering how does this pickup sound in sg's? i heard there pretty good in sg's so i bought one. I play mostly classic rock, 80s hard rock (van halen/rhandy stuff as you can tell), and some dirty blues. Will this pickup get the job done? Id really love your input guys!

    Thanks in advance- andrew

    I have a PG set in my Lester and they rock. They will nail the classic rock and blues, and with the right amp (i.e. enough gain) it's plenty hot.

      Wow that was fast! Thanks man, when it comes down to it, i have a rhandy flying v with a superD to nail the metlalica stuff, I was hoping for a nice Rockin bucker for some nice down and dirty blues, that can also crunch nicely for hard rock and rocking riffs, Ya know? Is the PG versatile?

      Thanks again!- Andrew

        It's very versatile. I use my Lester for everything, STP style grind, AC/DC style riffage, classic rock, clean and overdriven blues, Jazz/bop, and even a bit of funk in the middle position.

          Oh, I almost forgot. do the 50's style wiring, it opens up the neck pickup in a big way.

              i got a question though:
