Versatile medium output humbucker designed to bridge the gap between vintage and modern tones.

Mojotone has bridged the gap between vintage and modern toned humbuckers with the extremely versatile "Classic Hot" humbucker. The all new "Classic Hot" humbucker is designed with unbalanced coils and a scattered winding pattern that enhances upper frequency overtones and response.
Paired with our standard "Classic" neck pickup, they give you that heavier rock and blues tone without sacrificing clarity. The overwound bridge pickup hits that versatile sweet spot for delivering more authority in the lows with richer dynamics and articulation in the highs. Throw some gain on it and you will get a firm presence that cuts through with clarity and sustain for that perfect classic rock tone! 4-Conductor and vacuum potted coils.
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.

Rock solid! Paired this with a Classic neck in an all mahogany Warmoth Les Paul. Bottom line is that this pickup just rules. Lots and lots of crunch with complete ease of pinch harmonics, if you like that sort of thing, great articulation, plus an enormous low-end. I mean, like seriously deep low-end. Be prepared to use the Bass control on your amp. Another complete winner from Mojo.

ROKNFNROL Great humbuckers. Lots of clarity and crisp high-end with a bit of added power to push your amp a bit harder, like a hot vintage PAF. Highly recommended!

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.
