The DW CE 24 Floyd model starts with the PRS CE bolt-on platform and includes a satin-finished maple neck, maple fretboard, a slightly modified Pattern Thin neck carve (Waring’s carve is slightly thinner front to back), and Floyd Rose tremolo system. The pickups and electronics are also unique to Waring’s signature axe. The pickups are Waring’s signature Mojotone “DW Tomahawk” pickups. Made with a blend of Ceramic and Alnico magnets and a special winding technique, DW Tomahawks have plenty of output and big bottom end while remaining articulate and clear – a unique quality for high gain pickups. Paired with a volume and tone control and 5-way blade pickup selector that have been shifted slightly to allow plenty of room to work the tremolo, the DW CE 24 “Floyd” is comfortable, fun, and inspiring to play. The DW CE 24 “Floyd” comes with satin black hardware and is available in five color options, including Waring’s signature finish: Waring Burst.
“This model has been the most stable, pleasure-to-play instrument I’ve ever had. I’ve put it through the paces, and it’s made me proud to have my name on it.” – Dustie Waring, Between the Buried & Me
MOJOTONE “DW TOMAHAWK” PICKUPS
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 a custom blend of Ceramic and Alnico magnets along with our special winding technique to give the ‘DW Tomahawk’ the power and big bottom end of a high output humbucker while breathing with the clarity and articulation of a vintage humbucker.
The ‘DW Tomahawk’ is a one of a kind, passive, high output humbucker, designed to have more clarity without muddying up or compressing your sound like most other high output pickups. So forget about what you’ve heard with other high output humbuckers and take a look at the new ‘DW Tomahawk.’ This is a fresh new take on high output humbuckers that won’t leave you disappointed or uninspired.
Dustie Waring is the rhythm/lead guitarist for the American progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me. He joined in early 2005 after replacing former guitarist Shane Blay. He contributes the lead parts in select songs off studio albums Alaska, The Anatomy Of and Colors. Heavily influenced by bands such as Pantera, Cannibal Corpse, and Dream Theater, Dustie Waring is a self-taught guitar player, mainly learning off instructional videos and by ear. He also is the guitar player for the deathcore band, Glass Casket.
