The Mojotone "Sledgehammer" humbucker guitar pickup is the biggest
sounding humbucker we offer. It has a big round bottom end with nice
even mids and highs that retain clarity and warmth. The Sledgehammer
humbucker with its custom Alnico 8 magnet, makes it the most soulful
sounding high output pickup on the market. It cleans up beautifully when
you need it, and drives really hard when pushed. This is a must have
pickup for huge hard rock and metal tones. 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.

null It must be the barbecue in North Carolina or something. Has to be because without fail, Mojotone serves up yet another one of its stellar, delicious pickup treats that's an absolute killer, a true must buy. Other 'hand wound' pickups from . . .oh I don't know . . England or Australia (maybe?) don't come remotely close to this one and yet cost sizably more. If what you'd like is a tight, percussive feel, solid bass, rich mids, fat highs, and clarity, this is the pickup for you. On the other hand, if you really enjoy food lacking soul, don't buy this pickup.
On another note, however, I'd say that the available video demo of this pickup does it no justice at all. None. I mean, through an amp modeler? Huh? Anyway, trust me that when played through a real tube amp with gain, this pickup is the sonic equivalent of smoky molasses, spice, deep roast coffee, maple pecans, and heavy calories. Very heavy. Weight-watchers need not apply.
So, what are you waiting for? Buy this beauty a la fast and wear a bib, for chrissakes. You don't want to be a slob and drool all over your axe, do you? I didn't think so.

The Honeymoon is over. Now that I've had this pickup for more than five minutes, I thought I'd share some more detailed thoughts on it's capabilities and practical applications. I've discovered, after many adjustments with a screwdriver, that the Sledge' enjoys a bit of distance between itself and the strings. Too close and it can start to sound a bit overbearing, but too far and it will lose its attitude. While certainly aggressive, it also works very well with a softer attack and lets the notes bloom nicely. On the other hand, goose the gain and it will do an impressive chunk/klang-active impression while palm-muting. I've tried at least a half-dozen other pickups in my guitar and I just keep putting the Sledge' back in. Nothing quite does what it does.

Large and mostly in charge... This pickup certainly sounds BIG. Big as in truck-loads of airy mids and a resonant but tight bottom end. The high end is very soft and to my ears, never harsh at all. Cleans are bold and dark with the EQ on my amp set correctly. Overdriven sounds are articulate, saturated, crunchy and a bit thunderous. Volume knob reductions won't yield super clean sounds, but this is a high output pickup after all. A fantastic pickup for a rhythm guitarist who wants some meat in his tone or a single guitarist in a band that needs some sonic space filled.
