Paul Waggoner Hornet Gen2 Humbucker Pickup
Friend and fellow North Carolinian Paul Waggoner, of the NC based progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me, has collaborated with us to develop his signature Mojotone humbucker pickup model called the "PW Hornet."
The "PW Hornet" humbucker is specially designed to provide a wide variety of progressive tones from pristine cleans full of warmth to heavy leads and chunky chord voicings, without going mushy on the lows or harsh on the highs. The girth and clarity of its coil tapped tones combined with its dynamic pick attack response make the "PW Hornet" a well-balanced and extremely versatile high-output humbucker pickup.
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.
Pauls Signature Guitar, The PWM100, loaded with his Signature Mojotone PW Hornet pickups, is available through Ibanez:
Magnet: Alnico 4

Just my thoughts on the bridge model for now (just ordered the neck though). Precise, dynamic and quite expressive. Not a voice most would typically associate with metal, but does it extremely well (obviously). It lacks the midrange honk that I hear in most bridge humbuckers (the guitar it's in emphasizes that honk to a degree). It's really fun. The output won't rip your head off either.

I've had this in my Ibanez S-521 Bridge Position since July 2021, and I must say it is worlds beyond the what the stock pickups could do. Very "in your face" & "punchy" as Fluff said in the video review. If you can play their songs it can nail the BTBAM tone if you know how to tinker with your gear or have an amp modeler. A Port City Wave speaker cabinet IR for an amp modeler doesn't hurt either :)
Lastly I have 0 regrets on my choice, I can still play anything else I want with it besides BTBAM and it still sounds great.
If I had a bigger budget I would get the neck pickup option as well! I plan to put a DW Tomahawk in a future extra guitar's bridge as well. After being introduced to Mojotone's quality by the PW Hornet, I must say I can't wait!
