Fender Montego I and II

The Fender Montego guitars (single and dual pickup, Montego I and II respectively) were another branch in Fender's push towards non-solid body instruments. Along with the carved top Fender LTD on page 15, the Montego guitars were rather fine hollow-bodies aimed at jazz-musicians.

Both the Montego and LTD had first been listed in Fender price lists in July 1968, and last listed in 1973. In April 1970, the Montego ranged between $750 and $985; depending on finish (natural $45-50 more), dexterity (left-handed $75-85 more), and obviously the extra pickup ($100-110 more).

A magnificent duo created for professional guitarists
