Monte Pittman dropped by the Cosmo Music Store in Toronto and had the chance to present his signature guitar, the Jarrell MPS and played some riffs to the customers, covering all the different tones that he can get out of the MPS.
The guitar is loaded with Seymour Duncan pickups, the “Monte Pittman Set” and can cover pretty much any kind of music genre.

Axe-Static readers – you’re set for an awesome treat today! You can get an axe-clusive look of Monte Pittman‘s guitars for the MDNA Tour! As you all know, Monte has been Madonna’s guitarist since 2001 and has used a wide variety of guitars and effects to cover 25+ years of Madonna’s discography.
We’ve seen him playing with PRS, Breedlove and for the most tours Gibson guitars (having a gorgeous collection of custom Les Pauls and SGs) but this year Jarrell Guitars honored Monte by making a signature guitar for him! Loaded with an incredible selection of Seymour Duncan pickups (P-Rails, STK-S7 Vintage Hot Stack Plus and Dimebucker) the MPS (which comes in 3 models) is probably one of the most versatile guitars you’ll ever get to play.
Monte also got hooked with Bourgeois acoustic guitars, a company that makes not only amazing sounding guitars but also gorgeous looking.
Enough with the nerd talk! Time for photos!
Monte Pittman’s guitars for the MDNA Tour
Guitar player extra-ordinaire and incredibly versatile, Monte Pittman gave to Phillip Jarrell (of Jarrell Guitars) a great challenge when he asked him to make a guitar that can cover all the styles he plays. And you know what? They did it!
Monte, Jarrell Guitars and Seymour Duncan proudly present the Jarrell MPS, for which Monte talks about on RUST Magazine. The MPS is the only electric guitar that Monte uses for the whole MDNA show! (we still miss his arsenal of Gibsons!)

The MPS.1 and MPS.f are loaded with a custom Seymour Duncan pickup set which includes P-Rails-N on the neck, STK-S7 Vintage Hot Stack Plus in the middle and a Custom SH-13 (custom Dimebucker) on the bridge. The neck & bridge pickups can be split which makes the MPS one of the most versatile guitars in the market.
Guitar God aka Monte Pittman presented his signature guitar, the Jarrell-MPS at a press conference yesterday morning at NAMM with reps from Seymour Duncan and Orange Amps and demonstrated the tones that you can get out of it.
