The EC-431 pickup is an absolute workhorse! When only one pickup is in your guitar you need it to be very diverse and dynamic in order to suit all situations. The EC-431 pickup is exactly what you are looking for. Loud, dynamic, responsive with serious muscle to push your amp hard or dial back to clean up beautifully.
A fantastic choice for Blues, Rock, and Country rock. The slightly exaggerated midrange adds some serious punch.

Reached out to peg city pickups for some advice on a recent tele style build I finished. Recommended the EC-341 and a vintage wound p90 for the neck. Super happy with the build quality and sound is amazing. They do exactly what he said they would. Super happy, will be ordering for the next build soon.
Just received this pickup, & immediately went to swapping out the very hot tele pickup i had in my built esquire. & by the almighty punk gods, this pickup sings! Touch sensitive, very dynamic, even able to keep the volume on full, & just lightly pick it cleans up nicely. Can send my amp into overdrive without having insane amounts of gain. I couldn't have asked for a better pickup, & Kris is insanely helpful & insightful. Proud Canadian boy here, it's great to have a canadian product! If you're looking for a tele bridge pickup that can handle being on its own in a guitar, & bounce within every genre, this is the one!
I really like my new ec-431 pickup, installed it i my esquire and did the eldred mod using 0.0047uf tone capcitor at the switch and Now my esquire is my #1 axe .that pickup is very versatile and i love the dynamic and its is very articulated and well balance you can go from clean To dirty tone by just rolling the volume if you like twangny stuff it Will do it no problem i am not a jazz player but this pickup can do it to. But for me its' when the amp start To break up and you get those great 70/80 dirty overdrive tone . Great pickup Thank's Pegcity
I built myself a lovely, buttercream esquire project - and needed a really great pickup for the bridge..with just one pickup, it needed to be strong and verstile. The EC-431 met this need with spades. It’s a really rich sound and really pushes the various different tones when I change my playing style for different moods. With the Eldridge wiring, this thing really rocks!! Thank you Peg City! 👌
