Monty's Guitars '61 Mini Humbucker Nickel Set

Smaller Version of a Regular Humbucker


Put simply, the ’61 Mini Humbucker is a minimised version of a normal humbucker. However, these pickups offer more attack and brightness at the top end than your regular humbucker does. This variant features a Nickel finish.

With more mid-range penetration, this set can chime with the best of any single coil. Its almost the best of both worlds from a humbucker and individual coil, combined into one pickup.

Here’s what Monty’s Guitars say about the ‘61 Mini Humbucker

The mini-humbucker is a pickup shrouded in mystery and misunderstanding. Whilst most people are familiar with it from the late 60’s Les Paul Deluxe, it was first used in the early 60’s on Epiphone guitars, after their acquisition by Gibson in 1957. The mini-humbucker shouldn’t be confused with the Epiphone ‘New Yorker’ (technically called the ToneSpectrum), a single coil pickup that was phased out after Gibson bought Epiphone.

Monty’s mini-hums are modelled on the pickups from a ’61 Epiphone Crestwood Custom. This is by far the earliest mini-humbucker loaded guitar we’ve ever seen and – as far as we can work out – pretty much the first model ever to be fitted with them.
