Seymour Duncan Antiquity Fully Loaded Pickguard for Strat at a Glance:
  • Texas Hot custom bridge pickup
  • Texas Hot RW/RP middle pickup
  • Texas Hot neck pickup
Texas Hot custom bridge pickup

Seymour Duncan's Texas Hot custom bridge pickup is wound hot for juiced output and rotundity. Magnetically and physically aged to look and sound like a pickup from the 1950s, the Texas Hot custom bridge then gets an added dose of punch. Each pickup cover is aged individually, and not simply injection-molded with custom colors to look old. The magnets are carefully calibrated and the coils wound with North polarity - same as the real-deal vintage pups. With this pickup smoldering at the bridge of your Strat, you'll have the perfect launchpad for your attitude-laden lead work.

Texas Hot RW/RP middle pickup

The Texas Hot RW/RP (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity) middle pickup of this set - like all Texas Hots - is painstakingly assembled and hand-wound just like the classics. Duncan design details such as "scatter winding" ensures that your Texas Hot sounds just like a classic Stratocaster should. If you're after that elusive, crunchy Hendrix Hey Joe middle pickup sound, this pup pretty much nails it. As a bonus, the pickup's reverse-winding/reverse-polarity gives you noise canceling in the 2 and 4 switch positions.

Texas Hot neck pickup

You want chime? Seymour Duncan's Texas Hot neck pickup delivers. Like all the Texas Hots, the neck pickup is supremely responsive to your pick attack and your pinkie. Depending on how you have your amp set (and the pedals you have underfoot), a slight twist of your Strat's volume knob can take you from a delightfully spanky rhythm sound to full-on sonic armageddon. With Seymour Duncan's Antiquity Fully Loaded Pickguard, your Strat can do it all.

  • Texas Hot custom bridge pickup

Seymour Duncan Antiquity Pickguard

EVERYTHING I had read and heard about these pickups said I needed to try them so I did. The pickups have a very “aged” look about them (screws, magnets, knobs, etc.) which is as advertised. The pickup set I received even had some dirt around the tone/volume knobs, and a little near the bridge pickup cover. I’d read somewhere that Seymour Duncan does this for a “vintage” effect. However, I have to say I’ve been playing for over 40 years and have some very old guitars – none of them ever had dirt on them! The dirt (or the rust from the screws?) stained the cheap white plastic pickguard and couldn’t be completely cleaned. About the pickguard…this is a coarse, very flimsy piece of plastic. I didn’t’ realize “vintage” meant “cheap”. The hole pattern alignment between guitar and pickguard was a little off, but not a problem. The plastic pickup knife-switch knob had some red paint or dye on it that couldn’t be removed. Maybe that’s part of the vintage effect, but it looks shoddy. Installation was a breeze and very straight forward. My Stratocasters are all American made, playing through a Fender Twin Reverb amplifier. I couldn’t get a good strat’ tone with these Antiquities no matter what I did. The bridge pickup is flat and lifeless (no tonal sparkle for lack of a better description), and a bit twangy (but not thin). The Neck pickup is also sort of lifeless, no body, and can’t produce that rich, clear Stratocaster neck pup tone. The middle pickup is also pretty lifeless. It seems more of a “fly over” pickup transitioning between bridge and neck since it doesn’t really contribute much to the tonal palette (or lack thereof). In general, position 1, 3 and 5 all sound like minor variations of each other. These are wound RWRP so PUP positions 2 and 4 were satisfactory in terms of quack, sparkle, and no hum, but nothing out of the ordinary from stock fender pickups. Overall, I’m a bit disappointed. Maybe I just got a bad set. Since money is no object (‘cough’), I’m going to keep them for a while but they’re currently boxed-up in a closet.
