Texas Blues - The Malice from Dallas

The Axesrus® Texas Blues represent the pinnacle of the developments we’ve made with this line, taking elements from the “Original” model, designed way back when Axesrus® first started, and working pretty closely to the template used for the incredibly popular Alamo edition, this version finally ticks every box, dots every I and crosses every T when it comes to nailing that rich, soulful Texan tone .

We all know the tone! The one that oozes swagger and swing in its tone with a drum tight bottom end, a mid range that smooth’s out the normal single coil "twang" and brings a fair amount of growl into the mix, and a top end, with a slight boost, to maintain that bell like clarity that makes the Stratocaster® one of the most popular guitars out there today all genres of blues.

This final revision has been perfected thanks to it actually being hand wound here in house – and that means we can offer a much greater range of options with these pickups, ranging from brass backing plates, right through to different staggering options on the poles to allow.

All mounted to a pickguard, with the covers, knobs and tips, all in the colour of your choice.

Tech Talk
With all of the Texas Blues series, we constantly aimed to deliver that rich and raunchy Stratocaster® tone the really defines Texan Blues as a genre.

We achieve this by sticking to a tried and tested combination of 42 Gauge Plain Enamel wire and Alnico 5 magnets to deliver that responsive, timeless tone.

And the Texas Blues are no exception, you’re getting no bells or whistles to cheat a result! Just that classic combo, with a real attention to detail on a slightly enlarged coil to absolutely nail that hot, spanking voicing that’s so in demand today.

One thing to note, the hand winding gives a little bit of individual character to each pickup- so whilst every pickup will kick it when it comes this big Strat® tone, no two pickups are identical in their winds, so you’ll be getting your own tone every time – we think that’s a great little bonus when it comes to pickups. All the fun of custom made pickups without the ludicrous price tag!

5 of 5 Does dirt, does clean, and anything between. July 7, 2021
Reviewer: Geoff Mead from New Malden , Surrey United Kingdom  
I'd built a Harley Benton kit but the sound was unusable. Added a solid brass trem block and the Texas Blues and it's just wonderful. I feel as though I've just started to explore all the sounds in there.

5 of 5 Just the job... November 17, 2015
Reviewer: Mac McIntyre from Bath, Somerset .United Kingdom  
After finding a badly abused Tokai Stratocaster (Japan '83) in a charity shop I decided it needed a completely new set of electronics.
I already have a PreCBS Strat and a 90's Strat that give me excellent Strat tones, so I wanted another take on tone.
After completing the refurb a month ago I've been giving this Texas Blues assembly a damn good testing and I'm more than pleased with the results. Authentic Strat tones, but with that little extra power.
Well constructed, quality components, what more can I say... excellent.

5 of 5 Great kit February 4, 2015
Reviewer: Paul G from Bath, Somerset England  
I chose the lazy way to top off my latest home-build, but no regrets, immaculately put together with great components.  Love the pickups, really full strat sound in a heavy swamp ash body with a Wilkinson steel block trem, even the bridge position, which I usually find too harsh, sounds great!
