Welcome to Monster Music NY!
The Custom Collection 55 Striped Ebony features a striking striped ebony top, real flame maple binding and a great modernized design. It’s pickup configuration and Great 8 electronics mod have helped it stand out sonically. With the Mod Shop version we deliver something new thanks to a collaboration with Seymour Duncan pickups. For the Duncan Mod Shop 55 we chose pickups that provide a tremendous amount of versatility and pure vintage inspired tones. Our goal was to make this guitar a true “swiss army knife” to handle virtually any style of music. The only guitar you’d need for your gig. Stag Mag Bridge pickupThe 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 pickupThe 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 operation.Boutique Electronics Mod: Great 8 The Great 8 wiring mod allows either (or both) humbucking pickups to be coil split via 2 push/pull switches included on the master volume and tone control knobs. This combined with the 3-way pickup selector switch provides the player with 8 distinctive tonal options for covering a variety of musical styles
