The Monty’s ’59 Jazzmaster pickup set is a faithful reproduction of pickups found on a second production year model. The pickups successfully recapture what made the authentic Jazzmaster tone absolutely brilliant. This variant boasts a White finish.
The pickups blend well, resulting in a middle position that strikes a balance between the neck pickups warmth and the bridge pickups old school twang. An incredibly detailed sound is on offer here, with an open quality unmatched by other designs.
Meticulously detailed recreations of the ’59 Jazzmaster magnet stagger have been implemented here – adding to the vintage feel.
This keeps the centre of the coil free of wax build-up, with the benefit being both 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.
