The 1955 remains on of the top selling guitars in the Michael Kelly
product line. Players love the sonic versatility that it delivers and
the modern features that make it fun to play. This Mod Shop version is a
collaboration with Seymour Duncan, we worked to find the right pickups
to best leverage all the sonic potential of the ’55. Our Mod Shop crew
carefully installs a Seymour Duncan Stag Mag in the bridge and a potent
Seymourized Mini-Humbucker in the neck. Both can be coil-tapped using
the two push-pull pots to access a more vintage-inspired single-coil
tone. Here is a closer look at those great pickups:
Stag Mag Bridge pickup
The Stag Mag is a high output bridge pickup designed specifically to
give players a true classic “double-cut” single coil tone when switched
into split mode which is part of our Great 8 wiring mod (details below).
The Stag Mag has alnico 2 rod magnets with a traditional single-coil
pole stagger, and a specially designed high output coil wind so the
sound is bouncy and bright when coil split. When both coils are active
in full humbucker mode, the tone is fat and smooth. Hand built in Santa
Barbara, CA, the Stag Mag has a nickel silver bottom plate, and is
vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
Seymourized Mini Humbucker Neck pickup
The Seymourized Mini Humbucker has been described as Seymour’s favorite
pickup. The neck model in the Mod Shop 55 is designed so that each coil
contains a high-carbon steel blade coupled to the bottom-loaded alnico 5
bar magnet. The tone has more midrange and clarity, and provides nice,
even sounding chords with just a hint of snarl. Clean tones have a
clear, snappiness, and distorted tones have a nice midrange growl. Hand
made in Santa Barbara, CA and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free
Boutique Electronics Mod: Great 8
The Great 8 wiring mod allows either (or both) humbucking pickups to be
