The original boutique humbucker set makes your Les Paul look vintage and sound priceless.
The Antiquity neck humbucker delivers an articulate, yet mellow tone that results from a perfectly balanced frequency response that combines a soft, sweet treble attack with a warm, full sounding low-end. The custom aged alnico 2 bar magnet creates an airy openness to the top-end that gives chords clarity and articulation, while the vintage output coils really bring out the rich harmonic content. Single notes have a beautiful singing quality with just the right amount of treble emphasis.
The Antiquity bridge humbucker delivers that open, airy tone of the great “P.A.F.” humbuckers that Seth Lover designed in 1955. High notes cut through without being overly bright, and low notes growl with spongy vintage warmth. We wind the bridge model a little hotter for better balance and added warmth, and, as with the neck model, we use the same custom hand-aging process to create an authentic vintage look and sound.
- Aged both cosmetically and magnetically to simulate the wear and tear that a pickup goes through after decades of playing.
- Staying true to the original Gibson P.A.F., these humbuckers are not wax potted which takes you right to the edge of harmonic breakup.
- Every bottom plate & bar magnet is signed by Seymour to guarantee that you are getting an original Seymour Duncan Antiquity.
- Nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs.
