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.

Put a set of these with nickel covers in a 16â€™ les Paul traditional along with their standard long shaft wiring kit. They have improved the sound of the guitar 10 fold. For ambient room filling cleans, 80â€™s metal, grunge or event Djent these can really do it all. I was worried the high output of the bridge would get to harry under light playing but itâ€™s actually a clean pickup when you want it to be. The neck is very round and smooth for those upper fret solos. Theyâ€™re like double hot PAFâ€™s, plenty of mid range push, and tight palm mutes without being over the top like a modern metal humbucker.
