This is Monty’s take on the classic Fender Offset design, assembled, finished, wired and setup in our London workshop using premium hardware and our own pickups.
The body is an Allparts USA swamp ash Jazzmaster and the neck is an Allparts Fender Licenced maple Jazzmaster model with a rosewood board. It has a 9.5 fingerboard radius, refretted with Jescar Evo Gold fret wire for an effortless playing experience, and sports an unbleached bone nut, crafted from a blank by our own fair hands.
The finish is shell pink nitrocellulose which we lovingly sprayed and relic'd ourselves.
The bridge and tailpiece are the superb Mastery models, eliminating all of the classic (if incredibly annoying) issues inherent to the traditional offset tremolo system. The tuners and all other hardware are Gotoh Nickel.
The pickguard is custom cut from forbon by us here at Monty’s HQ.
The guitar is loaded with a Monty’s Jazzmaster-sized Phat 90 in the bridge position and the Monty’s Vintage Jazzmaster in the neck position, perfectly mixing the crystalline tones of a vintage Jazzmaster with the versatility and girth of a good P90.
This guitar features Bourns conductive plastic pots for premium taper and performance and a new old stock Russian capacitor for that sweet soviet era tone sweep. The jack and switch are Switchcraft and the guitar features vintage style pushback wire.
We have installed Monty’s neck bolt kit for a tighter contact between the neck and body, thus increasing sustain and TONE.
The guitar has been relic’d but is very good condition otherwise.
We've set the guitar up with Elixir 10-52s, but we would be delighted to set it up with a different string gauge if you so desire.
If you fancy giving this guitar a try, do feel free to pop on into our workshop. We're based in Acton, London.
Please note that, due to CITES regulations, we are unable to ship this guitar outside of the EU.
