    Pimped the AF55 with a new tailpiece ($20 on AliExpress) for a little Barney Kessel/ES-350 vibe... Looks great, even if I say so myself!

    Looks real good. Have you found that it changes the tone or sustain in any way?

    No, I didn’t notice any significant change! So if there is, it must be very subtle Ibanez AF55

    Little Jay,

    This is just the thread/conversation which offers so much insight, let alone information, on what is possible towards creating with this guitar. Thank youuu!
    Best long-running thread on the AF55.
    Ibanez should hire you.

    Little Jay thanks for all the information. When swapping pots n toggle was there a need to change size of hole or a washer needed for volume pot in toggle hole?
    Thanks,

    Yes, I reamed the hole for the toggle switch with a step hole cutter:



    I didn’t need an extra washer to mount a volume pot in the old toggle switch hole, the normal washer was sufficient and the toggle switch hole isn’t that much bigger than a pot hole Ibanez AF55

    Thanks, looks like they do have everything.
    How about the pattern for the pickguard, did you just drew it yourself?

    If you go back enough yes he did create the pattern himself. You may also want to look at 920D for a wiring harness they created mine for me. I’m utilizing new pick ups Seymour Duncan jazz. I’ve decided to go with the Graphtec tuners which have mounting brackets which will match the current poor tuners. I’ve been a bit too busy playing rather than changing up this guitar. I’m blown away at how good this guitar is for the price.

    Yes I designed it myself. I think I used another old pickguard (old Ibanez from my ES-175 copy probably) for a fluent line and adjusted that to taste (had to enlarge it).

    The distance between pickups in the AF55 is more than a 175 for example, so guards for that won’t fit!
