The Monty’s ’62 P-bass pickup is a faithful recreation of a timeless, post-1957 P-Bass pickup. This variant features a Black finish.
A punchy, direct sound is the key characteristic of this pickup. Attack with a percussive quality (while remaining touch sensitive), adds nuance to your playing. A trio of punchy mids, massive low end and the perfect amount of treble equals a wonderful sounding pickup.
This ensures that the centre of the coil remains free of wax. The result is improved responsiveness and clarity.
Here’s what Monty’s Guitars say about the Originals
Our sonic recreations of real vintage pickups, the Originals series is the bread and butter of Monty’s pickup universe. Over the last 20 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to see, repair and play countless examples of basically every vintage pickup imaginable. While not every old pickup is particularly good (in fact we’ve seen some absolute shockers in our time), the best of them are simply divine. We’ve worked out what it is that makes these tonal titans tick and distilled their essence into each and every one of our Originals series pickups. If you’re after pure vintage tone, these are the pickups for you.
