The original pickups have been changed out for a complete set of Monty’s Guitars 54’ Stratocaster set. Anyone who is into Strats knows that Montys are in the top 1 or 2 in the country in terms of quality and sound. I guarantee you will not be disappointed with these. Genuinely sound as good as vintage ones. The loom, pots and switches have all been matched to these pickups too. It’s an awesome sound.

 

Heres what Montys says about their pickups and looms.

 

Montys Guitars 54’ Pickup set

 

Monty’s ’54 strat set is our recreation of some of the first sets of strat pickups to enter production. As with all our original series pickups, these pickups are modeled off the original pickups from vintage guitars that we’ve been fortunate enough to get our hands on.

Like all good mid 50’s strat pickups, Monty’s ’54 set has a mid-range character that borders on the telecaster-esque, providing a fatness that perfectly complements the snap of a maple fretboard without ever losing clarity or harmonic content. This mid-range also means that these pickups can really drive an amp when you need them to, giving a wonderfully fat, clear drive sound with more than a touch of vintage twang.

True to the originals, these pickups feature magnets beveled by our own fair hands and our painstaking recreation of the original ’54 magnet stagger.

Like all our strat pickups (and just like old Fender pickups), our ’54 pickups are only partially potted. This keeps the center of the coil free from wax, resulting in increased clarity and responsiveness.

In the original prototype design for the Stratocaster, Leo Fender included plain steel baseplates on all three of the pickups. Whilst these got removed from the design before the guitar entered production, we’re also making these pickups available with baseplates for anyone looking for an authentic pre-production strat sound. We also offer the option of having a baseplate on the bridge pickup only. I would pretend that this is in some way authentic, but it isn’t. It’s just a cool mod that fattens up the bridge pickup a little.

Scatterwound using period correct 42-gauge Heavy Formvar wire:
