Who else here uses their AF75 or AF55 for anything other than jazz or rockabilly, such as hard rock or punk, and what mods have you done to get it to the sounds you want? Currently im in the process of replacing the pickups with blacktop filter trons, kill pot, and the tailpiece with the Gretsch G5191 (granted i can find one or able to order one from Gretsch) Heres how mine looks as of now, before the upgrades http://imgur.com/y0jFO7G

I've used mine for bluesy pop and more purely blues. It has a great mellow tone, and the low output pickups have a nice soft quality to the breakup when amplifed with gain.

Here's a link to a tune I recorded with it. This is part of a demo EP I did with a band that broke up when the singer/songwriter moved out of town.


Epi LP dbl cut w/p90s
Epi Nighthawk RI TA
Oscar Schmidt OM-30/Mean 90s
Ovation 1984 1612
Fender Blues Deluxe
