The Mod Shop 55 is a customized version of our top selling 1955 model.
We start with a great 1955 in any available color and then customize it
in our shop in Kentucky. With this Mod Shop version we add some great
Lindy Fralin pickups and a great electronics mod to the 55's Swamp Ash
body, Quilt Maple top, Flame Maple binding and comfortable Maple neck.
On the 1955 Fralin Mod we went we went with the most articulate
humbucker we've ever heard in the bridge position, Fralin's Pure PAF.
Absolutely no "mud" here, the Pure PAF provides fantastic note
separation even when moderately overdriven. This pickup matches very
well with the Fralin Mini Humbucker which we put in the neck position of
the 1955 Mod. The Fralin Mini Humbucker is a dual coil hum-canceling
pickup with the clarity and "rounder" high strings normally associated
with a single coil pickup. Lindy Fralin suggested that we apply a
"partial-tap" option rather than the traditional "coil-split" which cuts
the output of one coil by 50% when activating the push-pull switch on
either of the control knobs. This makes for less of an overall volume
drop when splitting each pickup for a single coil tone.
