Matt has been working as a professional luthier, building and repairing guitars for ten years, starting under the guidance of Charlie Chandler, Brinsley Schwarz, Ian Allerton, Paul Herman and learning from the other great luthiers who came through Chandler Guitars of Kew. In 2010, Matt took the plunge and opened Montys Guitars.
After an age of testing, listening, tweaking, starting over, and tweaking again, Montys has finally released a range of custom pickups. Stratocaster, Telecaster, P90 and Humbucker sets are available, using both traditional and modern techniques to create a better pickup. Matts ethic is that you have to try everything to find out whats good, bad and ugly... different wire, magnets, potting amounts and techniques - it all makes a difference.
Past clients include Dave Gilmour, Pete Townshend, Terry Britten, Nick McCabe, Radiohead, Bernard Butler, Pat Metheny, Kasabian, The Temperance Movement, Vintage Trouble, Biffy Clyro, Band of Skulls, The Duke Spirit and many more.
If you want something thats not on our web site, fear not, Matt offers a custom shop service, so get in touch and we'll help you capture that tone you are looking for!
