4.0 1
It gets a really hot tone, with lots of grit and grind that cut the mix
Rio Grande Bluesbar
Sound Perceived output level: HOT, real dang hot. Singe the hairs off a Javelina at 500 yards! Tone: Middly, very gutsy sound. Lots of grind, just the thing to fatten up the bridge on a somewhat thin sounding guitar.

Sonic evaluation: Installed in the Bridge position of a Gibson ES135, replacing the original. Used with classic, non-master volume tube combos, Deluxe Reverb, *real* vintage 59 Bassman. This pickup really screams through the Bassman, it really sounded damn good. Has a great, gut-pounding tone through a nearly dimed Deluxe Reverb. This pickup in the bridge makes a natural mate for the Rio Grande Jazzbar in the neck position.
Overall Rating Comments: I would go with this pickup again. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this pickup a: 9

Baby BBQ

Honey, I shrunk the pickups!!! The long awaited "BABY" Texas and BBQ humbuckings are in. After much tinkering around and "beaucoup" prototypes, we are introducing these l'il beauties for your tonal consumption. With outputs of 10k and 12k respectively, the Baby TX & BBQ are head and hands above other more anemic offerings out there in guitardom. Since this type of pickup was introduced in the 60's in various forms (Epiphones, Firebirds) and the 70's Les Paul Deluxe, they have always come up short in power and presence. Those days are gone now with these "babies" entering the field. Included are over sized polepieces, radiator baseplate, and a number of finishes including chrome, nickel, and toasted nickel. A "no holes" cover option is also available for applications where an historic look is required. For applications requiring three pickups, use a Baby BBQ in the bridge and two Baby TX's. Pickups are double wax potted and 2 conductor braided cable is standard..4 conductor optional. Muscle, output, and full sized polepieces combine to bring it all home....Baby BBQ is recommended for bridge position...12k
