Texas Blues – The Malice from Dallas!

The Axesrus® Texas Blues represent the pinnacle of the development in 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.

Supplied with cover (choice of colour) and screws (choice of colour) and springs as standard, and with a few little extra options to really help you nail the tone your chasing.

5 of 5 Texas sizzle and Mexican hot sauce December 1, 2017
Reviewer: Vinny Irvine from Nottingham, .United Kingdom  
I got one for the middle position in my HSH strat. The humbuckers being Axesrus Bourbon City .
The Texas Blues, to me sits between those slightly overwound Fender single coils, Tex Mex and Texas Specials - warm but not dull, plenty of bite, spank and twang without being shrill or brittle, a nice mid range boost that cuts through the mix in a band situation.

Clean they are very clear but more bell like rather than glassy, pushed they growl and in the dirty channel they come alive with Texas sizzle.
In this guitar the aim was to get a hybrid Billy Gibbons / SRV tone. The HSH combo hits the the spot - they sound like a matched custom set.

5 of 5 Great Pickups March 6, 2017
Reviewer: Jonathan M Leonard from Swansea, United Kingdom  
Added a Texas Blues bridge pickup to my Fender 50s series strat. Already have an Axesrus Strings Ransom pickup in the mid position.
Pickup arrived this morning less than 48 hours after ordering. Really nicely packaged too. Have always had great service from axesrus. And these hand wound pickups are absolutely fabulous.

5 of 5 Bad Ass Blues July 27, 2016
Reviewer: Keith from Dunfermline, United Kingdom  
Ok, so these went in a 66 Dakota Red build I was working on and I guess this is one of the most popular pickup upgrade folk do on a strat - texas hot! These just give the amp preamp a bit more bustle and just turns the break up to sweet levels. I especially like the neck pickup for playing up the neck. Nice!
