BILLY GIBBONS
 
RED DEVIL
 
 
Sizzling-hot Texas tone for Strat-style single coil guitars—so good you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.

 

Keep the summer heat going with our brand new Billy Gibbons Red Devil Pickups! 

Everything is bigger in Texas—and it’s hard to imagine a bigger tone than Texas-born Billy Gibbons’ 1959 Les Paul, Pearly Gates. Renowned for his highly distinct tone, Billy Gibbons has never been one to limit himself to a single guitar. Needing to recreate his legendary 59’ humbucker tone but in a Strat-sized single coil route, Billy placed a call to La Maestra, Maricela “MJ” Juarez. From their conversation a new pickup set was born and is destined to be as legendary as the Texas rocker himself.​​​​​​​ All the fat, P.A.F. tone and Texas hot-sauce sizzle of Billy’s favorite was recreated in a pickup that will fit in any Strat-sized single coil route—proving tone as big as Texas can come in deceptively small packages.

 

The Red Devil for Strat set features three unique pickup winds, with specially calibrated Alnico 5 magnets. The bridge is wound like an extra spicy P.A.F., with enough meat to beef up your Strat and provide the fat tone of Billy’s #1. The neck and middle step back the heat a little and brush on sweet, smoky blues—ideal for cleans, rhythm, or lead.

 

Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory; the Red Devil model for Strat uses Alnico 5 magnets, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and vacuum wax potting for squeal-free performance.

Billy Gibbons is undoubtedly Rock's "Master Of Tone." Talking shop with other guitarist during the 35 years of my professional career - 99% of the time his unique, genre changing tones. From using an old am radio as a preamp to his belt buckle guitar swinging belts, he's more than a legendary guitarist and trend setter - he's an innovator and truly a music icon. When Yamaha came out with the first digital effects processor, the SP90, they sent them to several singers and guitarists to get some feedback about  it's possibilities. Billy used it so extensively, coming up with tones that shocked the brains behind the rack mount. Consequently he was asked to write the last chapter of the owners manual and he obliged. That processor and a guitarist known for "keeping it simple" changed electric guitar and the sounds of Rock music forever. I can't wait to put these in one of my G&L's and letting it rip - Rock On Billy - Thanks for once again for sharing your brilliance and head turning, foot stomping tones.-@jeffhayfordmusic
