An edgy name for an edgy pickup! Though actually a single coil pickup, this replacement pickup for humbucking style guitars gives players the tone of the classic P-90's* of the '50's with a little extra South Texas funk thrown in. Fits a standard Humbucking mounting ring! Crunch all you want, we'll make more!" Also available in RWRP. Similar in appearance to the Bastard, The "Fat Bastard" offers more output while retaining a nice top end. Recommended for bridge position with a RWRP Bastard in the neck.

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
