Viva la PAF!

The Seymour Duncan Antiquity Humbucker Bridge pickup gives you the great sound of the legendary PAF (Patent Applied For) humbucking pickup designed by Seth Lover in 1955. Designed for the bridge position, this pickup is wound a little hotter than its neck counterpart, and is sonically balanced for bridge duties. And just like the originals, the Antiquity humbucker even exhibits slight variations in DC resistance. Each pickup is hand built in Duncan's special Antiquity Room, and every magnet and bottom plate are signed by Seymour himself. Get authentic PAF tone (and visuals) with the Seymour Duncan Antiquity Humbucker Bridge pickup.

Tasteful and a pleasure to play

These are absolutely the best bang for buck if you're looking for affordable/superb paf tone. They are wound, aged, and assembled in the custom shop by seymour himself or MJ (manager of the custom shop). These sound a cut above most of their production models which speaks volumes. The ant. aren't wax potted and it isn't too much of a problem if your wiring is top notch. A lot of the magic comes from it not being wax potted IMO. You get a very 3d organic tone from them when compared to other potted pickups. Very dynamic and respond well to the vol. knob being adjusted or pick attack. Can go anywhere from lush cleans to that perfect crunch with a Carl Martin Plexitone. I thought I would dislike the aged Alnico 2 magnet for the bridge, but it sounds heavenly with a 250K pot for the bridge. Still plenty of bite. These went into a Gibson CS-336 that I was going to sell, but they perfectly balanced the natural tone of the guitar and added a lot of warmth with the organic 3d texture. The antiquities basically saved that guitar. I love it now. You can't go wrong with these! Get them now!

Just what I expected from SD

Some years ago I had a set of Seth Lover pups installed in a big jazz guitar. They sounded great. The Antiquity Bridge pickup tone is just a bit smoother and lower output, maybe due to the A2 magnets. I installed this one into a new Yamaha Revstar (nice guitar by the way).
