The BBQ-Tron is classic 50's style Humbucking architecture with a lot more horsepower under the hood! Recommended bridge position.

The Genuine Tex-Tron is a bit less powerful than the BBQ and is ballsy and rich when wide open yet clean with lots of top and bottom when rolled back slightly. Fusion, Boogie, or down and out Blues City! Great neck position pickup when combined with a Barbeque Bucker in the bridge.

The Buffalo-Tron is our most "classic" humbucking to date, two of these babies replicates a typical 50's combo . Back in those days the same pickup would be found in both neck and bridge positions. However, we have learned a lot since then and prefer the Buffalo in the neck with a Genuine Texas in the bridge.
