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.

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! 👌
