This is a one of a kind guitar that I had made by Brian Monty. The body is typical mahogany as is used in the making of Les Pauls and the fretboard is real ebony. The humbucker pickups are M.G./Tom Short customs that I have made for me. The middle pup is a Gibson single coil humbucker from a Firebird.
The simple 5 position pup selector I designed for the guitar.
The paint I chose is a nitrocellulose paint as used on vintage guitars. Wonderful look. Interestingly, the very early Gibson guitars were painted with acrylic paint, the same as on cars! The color choices were basic car colors. The finish on this guitar is a “tobacco burst finish.” The darkest areas like the shoulders and neck are a very dark, almost brown/black.
There`s nothing really unique about the style of the guitar but it`s a familiar Gibson style I like very much. It is not heavy. It plays smoothly and is great for blues. Or jazz.
Brian Greenway had his Monty guitar stolen several years ago and it still hasn`t surfaced. Damn shame about that.
PS sorry pictures are wrong side up, I`ll work on that. LOL
