Monty's - Retro Wind - J Bass
Monty's modern take on vintage voiced pickups, the perfect blend of old meets new.
Retro Wind J Bass
Monty's Retro Wind J-Bass set is Monty's tastefully tweaked take on vintage J-Bass tone. These are based off of the pickups from a rather tasty 70s J-bass, adding just a touch more fatness and output to create a really versatile set of pickups that perfectly balance clarity and warmth.
Like so many single coil pickups of the era, the original pickups had amazing cut and clarity, but the bridge pickup was a little on the thin side. Monty's have left the neck pickup pretty true to the original, but made the bridge pickup slightly taller, allowing a few more winds onto the coil without losing any top end. The result is an incredibly well balanced, punchy pickup set that can easily cover a vast tonal expanse.
Like all Monty's single coil pickups, the Retro Winds are only partially potted. This keeps the centre of the coil free from wax, resulting in increased clarity and responsiveness. The neck pickup is RWRP for a hum cancelling middle position.
