Mojotone Releases PW Hornet Humbucker

Between the Buried and Me guitarist Paul Waggoner teams up with Mojotone for a signature pickup.

Burgaw, NC (June 2, 2014) -- Esteemed guitarist, Paul Waggoner, of the North Carolina based progressive metal band, Between the Buried and Me, has collaborated with Mojotone to develop a signature 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 the entire sonic spectrum is accounted for without getting mushy on the low end or harsh on the high end. With the built-in coil tapping feature, the girth and clarity of its tones combined with its dynamic pick attack response make the "PW Hornet" a well-balanced and extremely versatile high-output humbucking pickup.

The neck pickup utilizes an alnico 4 magnet and its DC resistance is measured at 7.5k while the bridge pickup utilizes a ceramic magnet and its DC resistance is measured at 11k. The PW Hornet is offered in a number of cosmetic variations and is available exclusively at mojotone.com.

MSRP: $120.00

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
