The pickguard uses the company's '58 Quiet Coil set with a custom vintage-output '58 Clone Humbucker.

Burgaw, NC (January 9, 2018) -- Mojotone's new Pre-wired HSS Quiet Coil Pickguard assembly was designed for Strat-style players who require tonal versatility out of their guitar without any hum.

Incorporating their '58 Quiet Coil set with a custom vintage output '58 Clone Humbucker, Mojotone gives players access to noise free vintage Strat-style tone with single-coil clarity in the neck and middle positions and creamy P.A.F. tones in the bridge that cut through the mix with authority and unparalleled articulation.

Mojotone also includes their unique blender wiring that features an auto-tapped 2nd position and a treble bleed cap in their Prewired HSS QC Pickguard assembly, allowing players to find inspiring HSS tones and plenty versatility.

As with all of the Mojotone Pre-Wired Pickguards, the HSS QC is completely solderless for quick and easy install and is assembled by hand in Burgaw, NC.

HSS Quiet Coil Pre-Wired Pickguard Design Features:

  • Solderless install
  • Treble bleed cap allows volume roll back without ever losing high end clarity and chime.
  • Position 2 (bridge & middle) automatically coil taps the bridge position humbucker for true Strat single coil quack and tone.
  • Blend in neck or bridge pickup as much as you want in positions 1,2,4, and 5.
  • Vintage taper CTS pots, Oil filled Vitamin "T" tone cap, CRL 5-way switch, and Switchcraft jack.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
