The Retro Wind Humbucker is a vintage-voiced humbucker with modern ideals from Monty’s Guitars. A noticeable bite in the mids and tight response in the bass, this humbucker also provides dynamic highs. The coils here are also slightly unbalanced, which results in more clarity and preservation of those highs. This particular variant boasts a Nickel finish.
This makes for a direct sound with far fewer harmonic overtones and ensures you’ll cut through any mix.
Four Conductor Connector Wire
These humbuckers come with four conductor connector wire – meaning you can wire them to suit your personal preference.
Here’s what Monty’s Guitars say about the Retro Winds
Our Retro Winds are a range of pickups that are completely at one with themselves; with a perfect balance of vintage voicing and a few modern Montyfications, these pickups are wound to provide the discerning modern player with a vintage vibe. Every tweak that we’ve made is designed to make things a little bit more flexible, be it introducing hum cancelling middle positions, or potting our humbuckers.
