Seymour Duncan Brobucker vs Rio Grande BBQ

Any one have experience with both of these? I was getting ready to get a Brobucker and then I saw something about the BBQ and now I cant make up my mind.

Re: Seymour Duncan Brobucker vs Rio Grande BBQ

I really don't think I could install a pickup called a "Brobucker" in my guitar. All I can picture is this:

The reason it's called the "Brobucker" is because the specifications for it were designed by the ''forum brothers'' of the Seymour Duncan Users Group Forum.

Designed to be a "Hot PAF"

Re: Seymour Duncan Brobucker vs Rio Grande BBQ

I have had both and of those two the brobucker is much better than the BBQ which i found to be dark and not very clear sounding

BBQ for the win! Thick, meaty, full, powerful, wide, and clear!

Quick question: Does the brobucker come with a Jagerbomb, or 6 pack of Natty Light? If not, it is garbage.
