Monty’s Guitars. Guitar Pickups.
Talented friends making things that spark creativity have long played an important part in keeping ideas flowing in the studio.
Guitars are great tools for expression and guitar pickups capture the notes using magnets that in turn hit the valves in guitar amplifiers and produce the glorious tones we all love.
Monty’s Guitars in London and their awesome pickups have been helping me to capture these tones for the last 5 or so years. They’re made by hand the old way and each set is unique. It’s amazing how tactile and expressive these things are, and in turn how that guides my musical choices.
I’m not alone in making this discovery, Monty’s pickups can be found in the guitars of discerning players including: Pete Townshend, Dave Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Radiohead and Biffy Clyro.
