Welcome to The Mod Shop - where we’ve customized our popular 1955 Ebony Custom Collection model to bring you something even more special.

It’s equipped with our Great 8 Boutique Mod to give you 8 unique sound settings. In stock Mod Shop guitars are customized and shipped in 5 to 10 business days.

EQUIPPED WITH

Lindy Fralin Pickups

Each pickup is hand-wound in Virginia under the watchful eye of Lindy Fralin himself. The attention to detail and focus on tone is why we enjoy doing so much with Lindy.

Mod Shop 55 Ebony Custom Fralin

The Custom Collection 55 Striped Ebony is one of our most in demand models globally. How on earth could we make it better? By teaming up with our friend Lindy Fralin and coming up with a new pickup combination that makes this a sonic epiphany. Lindy and his small team of pickup artisans hand wind each pickup used in this Mod Shop instrument. For the bridge position you get the Pure PAF. It is Fralin's most articulate humbucker, there is 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. 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. We also gave it our Great 8 Full-Tap mod so you can coil-tap each pickup to get that more traditional single coil tone. Looks, tone, feel - this Mod Shop has it all.

MODERN-C - 50s SERIES

Comfort without sacrifice, that is how you might describe our 50’s series Modern-C shape. The size is what many would call medium to medium-thin and the shape is a really smooth and comfortable round shape. The thin profile makes it faster than the typical vintage neck, while the carefully contoured C-shape makes it comfortable for extended playing.
