Imagine a Humbucker that's got it all. Warm, tight, big and growly bass, complex and sweet mids and lush, thick,  creamy highs. In our experience most Humbuckers we have ever tried had either a nice bass response and skinny treble, or thick treble and loose, muddy bass. We had to rectify the situation and after much experimentation came up with the GT500 (formally the Mutterbucker). Now here is a pickup that hangs with the best. Eddie's swagger, Angus' attitude, Gary's sustain? Yep, it's all there. Slightly overwound to around 9K it's hot enough to give your amp a little kicking but not too hot to strangle the input. It picks up every nuance of your touch and seems to make the notes connect just that little bit quicker for a very dynamic and fluent style.

The GT500 bridge has now been married up with a neck Humbucker that is warm and sweet sounding whilst retaining a woody bite. The GT500 neck is wound with Heavy Formvar wire usually used in single coils, as the coating is slightly thicker it gives the GT500 neck pickup a fatter coil than you would expect creating more mids and punch. the coils are also unbalanced by a few percent which give this pickup its great high end response.

Bridge - 9k

Neck - 7.9k


The Monty's Humdinger sets are vintage voiced humbucker pickups. With a true open tone full of the harmonics you would expect from Mr. Lovers original design. Using 42 gauge plain enamel wire and magnets that are lightly weakened by our own fair hands. The Monty's Humdinger has a tight response in the bass and mids and dynamic lush highs. The coils are ever so slightly unbalanced which broadens the sound and opens up the highs and definition, creating a very touch responsive, punchy, sweet sounding pickup.

Also available 5% over-wound for a slight thicker tone with more output.

Neck – 7.4k

Bridge – 8.2k

All Monty's humbucker pickups are wax potted by different amounts depending on pickup model, and come with four conductor connector wires as standard, and two conductor braided wire is available as an option.
