Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Pearly Gates humbuckers vs Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Signature humbuckers.

How do they compare? Best set for Blues/Classic rock? How do they compare to the Burstbucker 1/2 set I currently have?

Not interested in other pickups so don't bother with other suggestions.

Thanks.

I actually find them quite similar... the Pearlies are a tad hotter, but in all respects the JBs have always reminded me of the Pearlies.

JBs are limited, Pearlies are not and there are actually 3 flavors of PGs (the off the shelf model, the custom shop model and the ones wound specifically for the Billy Gibbons sig). Other than that they are pretty close...

My question was specifically about the Custom Shop Pearly Gates.
