This is the epitome of a workhorse guitar, assembled, wired and setup and by us in our UK workshop.
The body is an alder Allparts Telecaster model sprayed in seafoam green with a poly finish. The neck is a maple 22 fret USA Customs with a rosewood board. It has a 12” fingerboard radius, re-fretted by us with medium jumbo 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 pickups are our Full Monty Telecaster set with Monty’s five-way wiring loom. This option adds two extra colours (colors, to our American brethren) to your tonal pallet whilst maintaining the three classic Tele positions we all know and love. We have also popped in a treble bleed matrix to keep all things bright and beautiful when the volume is rolled off. The electronic guts are made from CTS, CRL, Switchcraft components which are all topped off with a new old stock Russian capacitor for that sweet soviet era tone sweep.
The hardware is Gotoh and tuners are Kluson.
The pickguard is custom cut from forbon by us here at Monty’s HQ.
We have installed Monty’s neck bolt kit for a tighter contact between the neck and body, thus increasing sustain and TONE.
The Neck has been aged and shows some deliberate signs of wear. The body is in very good condition. The guitar comes with a Hiscox hard case.
It has been set up by us with Elixir Nanoweb 10-52s, but we would be more than happy to set it up with a different string gauge if you so desire.
If you would like to try the guitar out, you are more than welcome to drop by our workshop. We are based in Acton, London.
Please note that, due to CITES regulations, we are unable to ship this guitar outside of the EU.
