Monte Pittman on World Tour with Madonna

When people hear about Monte Pittman the first thing they usually think is Madonna AND Prong? Monte has established himself as an incredibly versatile artist and his primary secret weapon is the guitar he designed with Jarrel Guitars called the MPS. This guitar gives a ton of tonal combinations with our P-Rails, Vintage Hot Stack Plus & Custom Shop Dimebucker.
From Tel Aviv to Istanbul, Monte has been travelling with Madonna to provide powerful guitar lines to her hit songs.
Seymour Duncan’s Evan Skopp just recently returned from seeing Monte Pittman play with Madonna in Israel and had this to say:
'Watching a show like this was really amazing, even for someone who spends a lot of time attending shows. Everything, from the dancing and choreography to the lights, the video, the multi-media, the staging, and, of course, the instrumentation and guitar tones, were extraordinary.
These were the highest production values I’ve ever witnessed and this was the first night of the tour. Oh yeah, and Madonna was amazing in her own right. I was really proud to see her playing a guitar with our Custom Shop pickups.
And then there was Monte. He played his Jarrell MPS throughout the show, except for a couple of numbers which he played an acoustic or a Jerry Jones sitar.
His guitar was clear and present, right up front in the mix, and he had an incredible variety of tones, from classic rock to sludgy metal to synth pop sounds. It was amazing that one guitar could have so many voices.'
