Dustie Waring Tomahawk Gen 2 Humbucker Pickup
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.

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!!!

Loaded in a Flying V bridge position. Wanted some octane in the bridge paired with smooth and creamy Classic in neck. Great combo for this guitar. Nice articulate for leads wide open and cleans up nicely for picking at lower settings.
