Single Pickup or Set of 3 Pickups
‘The Montereys’ are our take on the late sixties era of Strat Pickups both in appearance and tone. Featuring period correct Black Enamel Wire, Black and Grey Bobbins and Alnico 5 Staggered Magnets ‘The Montereys’ have proved a massive hit in our workshop. Far from just looking different to other Strat pickups, they have a mellow sweetness to the treble strings and ‘plonky’ twang to the bass strings which screams for the more relaxed bluesy playing of the late ‘Gypsies’ era of the man who inspired this set. With slightly less pronounced mid response than our ’63s, anything from funky scratch to bluesy rock playing is possible here.
