The Pegcity Private Stock humbuckers are a personal favourite. Not built to traditional humbucker standards. We step outside of the box and explore a tone with more bodied lows, warm yet full mids and glassy clean highs. These are a traditionally lower output with Alnico 4 magnets. The neck retains a fat and warm tone without becoming muddy or too thick. The bridge has smooth singing highs with an ability to push your amp into breakup yet remain clean and responsive to dynamic play styles. Calibrated to blend amazingly with each other.

Private Stock bridge

Kris and I decided on the Private Stock bridge pickup for a custom built guitar from luthier Steve J. Mash. Sort of a Melody Maker shape with a 25" scale, humbucker in bridge, tulipwood body, maple neck. The Private Stock bridge is a very versatile, dynamic pickup usable in a range of styles. Chose a black uncovered pickup, I'm most pleased with its versatility.
This is paired with a custom neck pickup, a unique design from Pegcity. To match the timbre, no hum, and power of the bridge, Kris built a stacked magnet single-coil sized design for this position. So, it's noiseless and pairs super well with bridge.
A great solution and a wide range of sounds available c/o a basic 1 volume, 1 tone, and a 3-way switch.

Private Stock

Thank you Kris. Stunningly beautiful set of Private Stock with Black Chrome faces to replace zebras in a really great looking yellow PRS Santana. Oh man....the sound and tone difference is Overwhelming !! Truly. Neck and mid positions have a richness, clarity and chime quality that makes me smile every time, but the bridge, wow, what a difference...very clear, clean, musical and "usable", unlike previous pickup. I now play this guitar with pride because of Kris's amazing craft and precision work. Package landed in Brisbane, Australia in 5 days ! Fitted perfectly with existing PRS factory PU borders. Highly Recommend your work Kris.

Private stock bridge

High quality pickup. Nice sound. I screwed up in my ordering and should have had 4c wiring for splitting coil. Kris offered to rewire the pick up for free. Great service. Thanks Kris.

Might be a new favourite

I've tried a few of the pickups Kris makes, and I'm always blown away by them, but the Private Stock might just be my new favourite. They're incredibly balanced, warm, but clearly articulated. The lows never get muddy, the highs never get too sharp, and the mids manage to cut through it all and shine like I've never heard from any other pickup. I'll definitely use these pickups again on future builds.

Very cool pickup

Has an old school grunge Niel Young sound sometimes when used on a little distortion. Has the great glassy highs as suggested. Does what it does well sounds angry and bluesy down to earth at the same time and great customer service. Thanks Peg City
