Have you ever played a Stratocaster and loved the sound but wanted just a little bit more? Well look no further, the Full Monty Stratocaster set has been designed to take the classic Strat sound as far as it can go by adding Monty’s patented ‘pure sonic girth’ while keeping everything quintessentially Stratty.
When wound wide open they start to verge on P90 territory, retaining the sweetness, the crispness and the clarity that you expect from a good Strat pickup while at the same time repeatedly kicking you in the balls… tonally speaking of course.
While the Full Monty’s are more than capable of pushing the front end of your amp into luxuriant overdrive with a real sense of weight and ample amounts of natural sustain, they never sacrifice clarity or top end shimmer for grunt and thrust, which provides the ability to cut through the mix and be heard without resorting to the amplifier volume creeping up and risking the soundman’s inevitable ire.
The set has a true dynamic range, varying your pick attack has a massive impact on the tone, lightly caressing the strings will clean up a dirty signal and digging in will unleash the aggression in the cleanest of tones.
The Full Monty Stratocaster Set prides itself on its versatility, it is more than happy to cover any sonic terrain you choose to traverse, rubbery funk flavoured rhythm chops, grizzled greasy blues bends, acid drenched headband wearing fuzz freak-outs, cousin bothering deep fried backwards country double stops, satanic panic inducing doom laden riffage, 100% Columbian pure Studio 54 slinky chord stabs and reggae.
If you are looking for a Stratocaster pickup set that can do it all, you have found it.
