I like things that look old and well worn from playing. They have character, like they've been used and well loved. That's how I started our Antiquity line of aged guitar and bass pickups." 'Seymour W. Duncan

"I made the original AntiquityGäó Humbucker to look and sound like a well-worn '50s PAF humbucker, as originally designed by Seth E. Lover. I wanted to give the player a pickup that looks like it's been played regularly for 40 or 50 years, so I aged the cover and the poles. What's new here is the gold covers, which take on our aging process very well, for a really cool look.

"The pickups are built to traditional standards; each has its own character and DC resistance, just like the originals. Included is a front-tapered mounting ring and the screws that go with it. The pickup is not wax-potted, which retains the vintage sound and appearance. Crafted by hand in my 'Antiquity' room, each pickup is signed on the magnet and bottom plate to guarantee that you are getting an original Seymour W. Duncan AntiquityGäó."

Construction:Plain enamel wire, Alnico II bar magnet with a wooden spacer, butyrate bobbins, black paper tape, vintage-style single-conductor cable, and long-legged nickel-silver bottom plate. To be true to the original design, the pickup is not wax-potted, which gives it a slightly microphonic "honky" quality.

Sound:True vintage PAF: Warm, full, bright, and mellow, with smooth sustain and relatively low output.

For: PAF aficionados with vintage-looking guitars.

Instrument: Brighter-toned instruments; not recommended for use with ultra-high-gain tube amplifiers over 50 watts.; Antiquity pickups especially enhance the well-loved appearance of old guitars.
