Mojotone "Johnny Winter" Firebird Pickupsku: #S3JWF761
In 2014, Johnny Winter teamed up with Mojotone to recreate his iconic sound with is signature Firebird pickup.
Based on his original Firebird pickups, these utilize the same exact materials and specs using aged cast Alnico magnets, vintage spec 42 gauge plain enamel wire, and a steel reflector plate. We carefully balanced the neck and bridge pickups for more even output and response between all positions.
We took the original vintage Firebird specs a step further with our own winding recipe to bring out a much broader frequency response and dynamic range with more output and sustain.
Johnny was proud of these beautiful sounding pickups and wanted to share his legendary tone with the world. Mojotone is honored to release his long desired signature pickups.
