The Pegcity P90 replacement pickups are built using modern materials with the basics in mind when it comes to voicing them. The neck position pickup was voiced first. Clear and harmonically rich with a sweet bell tone. The bridge was then calibrated to blend with the neck but still stand tall on its own. Powerful, punchy with spanky highs and the famous growl that everyone wants from a P90 pickup.

I purchased 2 Pegcity P90's for my Jazzmaster, both with alnico 2's. They have exceeded my expectations in every way. The expressiveness of the pickups is apparent - they jump to life and push out a sound that grabs hold of you and doesn't let go until you put down the guitar.
I could not be any happier with these pickups. I would absolutely recommend them!
I’ve just put in the soap bar P90s that I ordered and could not be happier. I’ve played on them for a week and love the sound. A huge upgrade from the stock ones. I chose traditional winding on both neck and bridge with Alnico 3 magnets.
I find them sensitive to height adjustments and have spent some time dialing them in. An obviously well made pickup with great packaging and documentation.
Again, I am very pleased.
Thank you Kris and Pegcity!
I really like the way this pickup has warmed up my sound. It does everything you expect a P90 to do but with clearer, warmer lows. Pegcity has a lot of information on their website about how they can help you find the sound you want. They give you lots of options for winding and magnets. The pickup comes nicely boxed with test specs and a very cool little jazz pick that’s my new favourite.
After installing my EC-431 in my esquire & loving the results, I wanted to replace a decent sounding Alnico 5 magnet, kinda vintage wound roughly 7.6k output dog ear p90 pickup in my double cut Jr style guitar. That A5 pickup was alright, but seemed to lack the p90 tone i've heard on countless punk records. Speaking with Kris about what i was looking for, & i had hit the nail directly. Alnico 3 magnet, with a 5% overwind, & man does it sound killer! Crisp, vintage & aggressive when needed. Rolling the volume sounds sweet, & there's a bouncing clarity to it through my high gain modded 5150 amp. Pegcity hit the ball out of the park, & i couldn't be happier of the home run outcome. Fast becoming a fan of this work, I'm sure i'll get something else to try in a guitar that's missing something hahaha. Pegcity rules!
Replaced somewhat thin-sounding Gibson P90 bridge pickup with Pegcity P90 on my Les Paul Jr. (5% overwind with the Alnico 3 magnet). I wanted the same vintage character with a fuller-sounding pickup with much less sharpness in the high frequencies. Well, Kris delivered exactly what I wanted and made my guitar come alive! I no longer see a point in ordering pickups from big-name brands and paying double the price. Highly recommended!
