Seymour Duncan Antiquity Humbucker Set Aged Nickel 1950's PAF (6 STRING SETS)

Seymour Duncan Antiquity Humbucker Set Aged Nickel 1950's PAF (6 STRING SETS)
(9-42 STRINGS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST). (THE DEFAULT STRING SIZE IS 10-46). Classic PAF tone with the right balance of treble articulation and low end warmth, but with a smoothness that has mellowed with age. The Antiquity bridge humbucker delivers that open, airy tone of the great PAF 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. Each Antiquity humbucker is hand built in our Custom Shop the way Seth Lover did.

The mold we use for our butyrate bobbins was created by the same factory that built theoriginal PAFmold for Gibson. Other key features include our specially manufactured 42AWG plain enamel mag-wire, nickel silver cover, 2.5-inch alnico 2 bar magnet, custom machined metal spacer & maple spacer, single conductor push-back braided lead wire, and nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs. Staying true to the original Gibson PAF, these humbuckers are not wax potted which takes you right to the edge of harmonic breakup. For that unmistakable vintage mojo, we wind everyAntiquity humbucker on Seymours original Leesona winding machine from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI. Every bottom plate & bar magnet are signed by Seymour to guarantee that you are getting an original Seymour Duncan Antiquity. Like the neck position model, the bridge position humbucker is a faithful replica of the great sounding "patent applied for" humbuckers that Seth E. Hookup wire includes the classic braided push back cloth braid wire. I made this model to look and sound like a well-worn'50s humbucker as originally designed by Seth E. 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 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. We have taken great care to make sure our Antiquities collection are all hand built in our Custom Shop the way Seth Lover did in 1955. The mold we use for our butyrate bobbins was created by the same factory that built theoriginalPAF mold for Gibson. Other key features include our specially manufactured 42AWG plain enamel mag wire, nickel silver cover, 2.5-inch alnico 2 bar magnet, custom machined metal spacer & maple spacer, single conductor push-back braided lead wire, and nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs.

Bottom plates & bar magnets are all signed by Seymour to guarantee that you are getting an original Seymour Duncan Antiquity. So please do not be concerned if you see that.
