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.
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!
