After the success of the DP51T Tele pickups, Monty’s Guitars and Danish Pete have teamed up once again for a set of signature Strat pickups, the DP63 set! Based on the pickups in Pete’s white “Frankenstrat”, these handwound pickups offer vintage Strat tones, with a Tele twist in the bridge.
Danish Pete Signature Set
Monty’s Guitars used Danish Pete’s Olympic White Strat as the basis for these pickups. While the origins of Pete’s Strat may be a mystery, one thing we do know is that it sounds amazing, and the DP63 set matches that great tone. The neck and middle positions give you that classic vintage Strat tone. Bright, articulate, and rounded, it’s the iconic Strat sound that fits so well in a range of genres from jazz to rock.
For the bridge pickup Pete decided to go in a different direction. As Pete is such a fan of Telecasters he thought he’d bring some of that Tele tone to the Strat. Like a Tele pickup, the bridge pickup in the DP63 set features a plate on the base and has been voiced to give you that bright and twangy Tele tone on a Strat!
