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 superior quality Alnico 5 magnets along with our special winding technique to give the 'DW Tomahawk' the power of a high output humbucker while breathing with the clarity and articulation of a vintage humbucker. 

The new 2nd Generation 'DW Tomahawk' is the same wind spec as the original, but Dustie wanted a few tweaks to make them a more versatile choice for all types of woods and guitars. The result was astonishingly perfect. Both the neck and bridge pickups have less pronounced mids, clearer and more balanced lows, with a slightly warmer top end to allow the amp and effects to do the final perfection of the tone shaping. It's a pickup that doesn't require you to compromise your settings, but rather emphasize them with absolute authority and tone. 

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.

Like nothing I have ever played before

by John Boyd -

I have never been a fan of passive pups.. but.
Bridge- The first thing that comes to mind is "note separation". You hear every note within its own frequency space completely separate from the others. Then, there is what I call "The disgustigator". A punishing, ominous yet subtle tone living beneath the main voicing that I can describe as rabid wolves chewing broken glass. Like a like a 900-ton concrete wheel rolling on asphalt decimating everything in its path. Crushing, pulverizing. It's a rolling, grinding sound that rings out with every chord. The notes are heavy but clear, the chugs are tight and focused. Neck- Warm, clear, focused and musical. The best for clean tones. But, it REALLY shines on high-gain leads. The neck forgoes rabid wolves and destruction for a more focused tactical strike. More lower mids and a slightly less focused high-end to subdue inherent ringing and unintentional harmonic overtones that come with playing single notes higher on the neck when ripping solos.
