'50 Broadcaster


Monty's Broadcaster set is a recreation of the pickups from Leo Fender's original electric guitar. An evolution of the earlier Fender Lap-steel pickups, these pickups have a distinctive twang with fat bass, a prominent mid-range and a slightly rounder top end than later Telecaster pickups. As part of Monty's Originals series, this set is modelled on original pickups from a few of the best 1950 Broadcasters ever to have come across Montys workbench.

The neck pickup is classic vintage telecaster: nice and warm without sacrificing the clarity needed to cut through. The Bridge pickup is a truly magnificent beast; the 43 gauge wire makes for a gutsy pickup with a punchy lower mid-range that sounds absolutely awesome. A Broadcaster set into a cranked Tweed style amp (or, come to think of it, pretty much any amp) is a truly magnificent sound.

Like all our Tele pickups (and just like old Fender pickups), these Broadcaster pickups are only partially potted. This keeps the centre of the coil free from wax, resulting in increased clarity and responsiveness.

Scatterwound using period correct 43-gauge Plain Enamel wire:

Neck- Alnico V, 7k

Bridge- Alnico V, 10k
