Guitarist Dustie Waring, of the NC based progressive metal band Between The Buried And Me, worked closely with Mojotone to create his extremely versatile signature pickup, the 'DW Tomahawk'. Dustie knows that heavier music has plenty of delicacy and requires a pickup that can aid the guitarist in achieving this. We use a custom blend of Ceramic and Alnico magnets along with our special winding technique to give the 'DW Tomahawk' the power and big bottom end of a high output humbucker while breathing with the clarity and articulation of a vintage humbucker.
The 'DW Tomahawk' is a one of a kind, passive, high output humbucker, designed to have more clarity without muddying up or compressing your sound like most other high output pickups. So forget about what you've heard with other high output humbuckers and take a look at the new 'DW Tomahawk.' This is a fresh new take on high output humbuckers that won't leave you disappointed or uninspired.
F-Spaced is for the bridge position only. All neck pickups are standard spaced. Choose F-Spaced for E to E string spacing wider than 2 inches at the saddles. Choose Standard spaced for anything 2 inches and under.

Most Well Rounded Pickup I just installed this pickup into my Les Paul with a mahogany body and flamed maple top and wow this pickup rips. Its a very versatile pickup in that its has very clear and articulate on chords and single notes but has that nice rounded smooth sound on the treble side. Its not harsh or shrill on the high strings which is really nice. I also love that the it has enough chunk and bite to still sound "metal" when it needs to but just a great overall pickup. Also I just have the bridge pickups. I need to buy the neck pickup asap. Don't Hesitate and buy this is your fan of btbam or just want a really versatile pickup!!!

Extremely Versatile Pickup I own the bridge version with an alnico 5 magnet and zebra bobbins. This pickup is paired with a custom pickup ordered from mojotone which is a humbucker that is constructed to sound more like a P90.
When I first ordered this pickup, I was slightly skeptical about humbuckers in general, as the band I perform with mainly uses single-coil guitars. Over the years, I have grown more accustomed to the dynamic response of single coils as many of the mainstream marketed humbuckers don't seem to have the air and freedom that single coils seem to have.
This pickup, however, totally changed my perspective on humbuckers. Speaking solely for the bridge pickup, I strummed full barre chords in the bridge position and it amazed me how much of the tonal spectrum I could hear in one strum. Coming from the stock pickups of a Reverend, this thing totally reshaped the sound of this guitar into an extremely dynamic, responsive, and wide sound that I would not have expected to get from a humbucker. It stays tight with a very nice low end resonance that fills out the chords. The mids aren't overbearing and keep a very open sound to the pickup. The highs are present but not ice picky, yet you can push it to get a treble attack if you really dig in. This pickup responds extremely well to whatever playstyle you are throwing at it, and that was exactly what I was looking for in a pickup,
Even my bandmates who all play single-coil equipped guitars were skeptical about how my sound would change with a humbucker equipped guitar, but even they were blown away by how dynamic my guitar sounded with the new humbuckers. We play music from alt rock to post-rock/ambient-rock and this guitar can cover all of those bases without getting muddied up or bogged down by the heavy use of effects that we employ (another reason we gravitated towards single coils as single coils seem able to hold up to the heavy effects better than humbuckers).
This pickup is a great workhorse pickup, as it will cover all bases for virtually any genre of music. The pickup adapts to however you use it, so if having a very open, dynamic, responsive pickup is your goal then get this one.
