The Monty’s 62 Stratocaster set is a reimagining of early '60s Strat sets and was produced to be as close to the originals as possible. This particular model features a Parchment finish.
These pickups are partially potted, which means the centre of the coil stays free of wax – resulting in more response and improved clarity.
Meticulous Magnet Manufacturing
Featuring faithful reproductions of the original ’62 magnet stagger, the pickups bring a truly vintage feel to the table.
Much brighter than their '50s predecessors, this set features a high-end chime with a slightly scooped mid. A full body helps to deliver hefty strat tones. String separation and great clarity, plus increased responsiveness means these pickups are incredibly versatile.
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.
