Good sound and AWESOME playing!!
Great playing - wish I could traverse the 'board like that.
Awesome tone - heard great things about Monty's.
What are the other three saddles? Brass, brass + nickel? Sounds like you're right about the balance.
Sounds great. A good guitar is a good guitar, vintage, custom shop, whatever doesn't necessarily make it better.
great tone, wishing i could play that sloppy, lol. you ve got some nice feeling in ur playing & you & that axe have a connection happening.
The tonal difference between your rhythm and lead settings is spot on. Interesting playing (in a good way).
Throw that piece of shit in your garbage
and let me know your address
I had never changed out pickups before so it was a lot of reading and deciphering the vast opinions on various different models. I couldn’t find a lot on Montys but what I could find was not negative, I couldn’t have been happier!
What was the pedal you used in your video? Awesome playing by the way!
This was mine after the rebirth...

Well it has to do with the guitar.. Mine had some harshness around the 12th fret on the high strings so the nylon saddles definitely helped to tame it.
My bridge is this one: http://www.pigtailmusic.com/Products.php#ABR1 I am not sure about the other saddles, probably brass and nickel (?)
Wait, is that a one-piece top?! Really gorgeous guitar.
Thank you ! Well it's actually a 3 piece
Awesome guitar! I can't watch the vid because I'm at work now, but I'm wondering how you like the nylon saddles?
When I first tried my Memphis '63 reissue ES-335 with nylon saddles I was expecting a dark dampened sound but they actually sound pretty good. They are less "metalic" but not more "plasticky". I would say a bit warmer and woodier. They tamed my Les Paul's top three string harshness nicely.
I know that Faber do a bridge where half saddles are non-plated brass for the GBE and titanium for the EAD. Supposedly balances out the strings. Was tempted to try one but don't really need to experiment with it in honesty.
My '14 Studio received a Faber ABR bridge with nickel plated brass saddles and the vintage aluminium tailpiece.
The '13 LP TP2 got the same but with natural brass saddles instead; really opens them up acoustically!
