The Retro Wind Telecaster partners a vintage sounding pickup with design that considers the needs of the current day guitarist. This variant boasts a Nickel finish.
The Retro Winds are perfectly suited to a bunch of contrasting genres. Play everything ranging from classic rock to cleaner country, with a responsive lively sound.
Pickups that are partially potted ensure that the coils centre remains free of wax – leading to improved responsiveness and better clarity.
A welcoming, almost percussive sound that’s full of harmonics is the end result here. This is due to both the neck and bridge pickups combining for a clearer, telecaster middle position.
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.
