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.

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.
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
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.
