Monte Montgomery (born August 11, 1966) is an American guitarist and singer-songwriter.


Montgomery appeared on PBS's Austin City Limits program on April 17, 1999.

Montgomery was on Guitar Player magazine's 2004 list of "The Top 50 All-Time Greatest Guitarists".[citation needed] Montgomery has also won the "Best Acoustic Guitar Player" award at the SXSW Festival’s Austin Music Awards seven years in a row (1998–2004), the only artist to have ever done so.[citation needed]

On January 24, 2004, Alvarez Guitars unveiled the MMY1 Monte Montgomery Signature Guitar, a model based on Montgomery's 1987 Alvarez-Yairi DY62C Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Due to his intense playing style, Montgomery has broken the neck of his DY62C four times—the MMY1 has a reinforced neck to prevent such breakage.[1]
