The Seymour Duncan Antiquity Bridge Humbucker is the original boutique, vintage humbucker pickup. Authentically aged, both cosmetically and magnetically, the Antiquity delivers the legendary "P.A.F" (Patent Applied For) tone from the golden era of guitar building. The Antiquity has an open, airy tone, with a vintage warmth and authenticity. High notes cut through without being overly bright and there is a rich harmonic content with clarity and articulation in abundance.
Each Antiquity Humbucker is hand built in the Seymour Duncan Custom shop and is wound on the original Leesona winding machine from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI. The mold used for the butyrate bobbins was even created in the same factory that built the original P.A.F. mold for Gibson. Staying true to Seth Lover's original P.A.F design, the Antiquity is not wax potted which takes it right to the edge of harmonic breakup.
With plenty of unmistakable vintage mojo, the Antiquity will add character and authenticity to any humbucker equipped guitar.
