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.

Nice balance. I was replacing Epiphone stock pickups. These are way better of course. Nice and hot but clean. Looking forward to gigging with them.
My client, Jeremy, is a recording artist pushing the line between instrumental rock and fusion, and needed a new set of HSH pickups to really finish out the customization on his signature guitar. We had selected a set that sounded on paper like the right ones, but Kris steered us over to the Private Stock set with a TC-204 in the middle position. Kris is the only guy I know who can listen to your body of work and land on exactly the right pickup for you. Every. Single. Time. Jeremy has been loving the warmth and bite these awesome and unique humbuckers, and I have plans to use them in even more guitars in the future.
I’m very impressed with the clear tone and great sustain these pickups have compared to the stock pickups in my PRS SE Paul’s guitar.
I spent a lot of time looking for aftermarket pickups and I'm glad I choose Peg City. Not only were the located in Canada (no import fees) they were reasonably priced and delivered quickly. They are also reasonably priced compared to what else is out there. The private stock pickups give my PRS SE Santana extra warmth and clarity which is what I wanted. They've elevated the guitar. I mostly play clean 60s jazz with few pedals such as an equalizer, noise gate, compressor, limited delay, etc. They sound amazing. Also, thanks Kris for reaching out to me. The black chrome covers with no holes also look amazing. This guitar is now a joy to play and ranks up there with my higher end collection of axes.
I was blown away by the sound of these pickups. Neck is very bell like with just the right amount of chime for a humbucker, and the bridge has that traditional PAF vibe. All of this topped off with a smooth, velvety blanket of warmth. Very evenly balanced with tasty grand piano like tone and articulation. Has some extra punch too. These are staying in my Les Paul.
