(RWRP Jazzbar neck and Bluesbar bridge)

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. The Jazzbar is not wound nearly so hot, and is reverse wrapped/polarity so that you can get a hum-cancelling effect with both pickups switched on. The pickup is made with alnico magnets, vintage style materials, wax potted, adjustable screws pole pieces and is an exact fit P90. For which styles and positions is this pickup (un)suitable: For electric blues, it's a great match. It gets a really hot tone, with lots of grit and grind that cut the mix.

Overall Rating Comments: I would go with this pickup again. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this pickup a: 9

Same as the "Bars" but with "Dawgear" covers. Available in creme and black.


Bluesbar - Alright, start your engines! Punch City with lots of body, Warmth, and oozing with soul. Recommended for bridge position (or both if you're brave!)

Muy Grande

A powerful replacement for the Tele® bridge, the Muy Grande gives you that classic tone you've come to expect, but a lot more of it!

Vintage Tallboy

Our most popular pickup to date, this “non stag” model offers enhanced replication of the good ol’ tonecasters. A5....7.2K

Dirty Harry

Like it's namesake, the Dirty Harry for Tele emulates the tonal characteristics of a P-90 pickup, but made for a Telecaster bridge opening.
