The Broadcaster lovingly recreates the pickups found on Leo Fender’s original electric guitar. Part of Monty’s Originals series, this set features noticeable mid-range, thicker bass and a more rounded top end than recent Tele pickups. This variant boasts a Nickel finish.
The bridge pickup is a powerhouse; with 43-gauge wire producing a punchier, lower mid-range which sounds amazing. Warm and of excellent clarity, the neck pickup is your timeless vintage telecaster – cutting through any mix.
These Broadcaster pickups are partially potted, keeping the coils centre free of wax. This results in improved response 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.
