Took out my set of Custom Shop Pearly Gates and re-installed the Gibson 59 Tributes that came with my 2015 Traditional. I have a DSL20HR now that I really like and was curious what difference the 59's would make. So far very pleased with the lower gain 59's. I now have much more adjustment on the Ultra Gain channel. With the Pearly Gates it's was almost balls to the wall even at very low gain setting. The 59's offer much more latitude frorm just slight overdrive to the metal grind at wide open. After this I just wondered when Gibson is "designing" a new Burstbucker or whatever what amp is used by the pickup designers when dialing in a new pickup? we all know how different our Les Pauls sound with a different amps so which one do they use to get a tone they are satisfied with.
