    Vintage look and tone

    Seymour Duncan Antiquity Texas Hot for StratPublished on 05/27/11 at 10:43
    Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups are hand made at the Seymour Duncan factory. These are hand wound to his custom specifications and use the appropriate aged magnets, wire and pickup covers. This aging process gives a vintage look and a vintage tone. The tone these pickups give is very authentic but with a little bit more punch and smoothness. The extra smoothness is nice for blues or classic rock. These are some of the best sounding single coils out on the market today. Going into a clean Fender Super Reverb amplifier as well as a Hiwatt Custom 100, the bridge position pickup chimes with the bell-like tones just like those that come from the best of the original Strats.

    Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups are hand made at the Seymour Duncan factory. These are hand wound to his custom specifications and use the appropriate aged magnets, wire and pickup covers. This aging process gives a vintage look and a vintage tone. The tone these pickups give is very authentic but with a little bit more punch and smoothness. The extra smoothness is nice for blues or classic rock. These are some of the best sounding single coils out on the market today. Going into a clean Fender Super Reverb amplifier as well as a Hiwatt Custom 100, the bridge position pickup chimes with the bell-like tones just like those that come from the best of the original Strats. However, unlike newer Strat pickups that can be overbearing at times with brightness, some of the highest frequencies are tapered off and the result is quite a musical and wonderfully balanced pickup. The neck and middle position are equally as stunning. The bottom end is nicely balanced on the neck with plenty of punch to the signal while the middle position has an even and basically flat response when you don’t want to overemphasize the lows or highs. This is good because you will mostly use the middle pickup paired up with another pickup so you do not want the middle pickup to have some weird voicing that sticks out when you are using it with another pickup. It also sounds good with some gain. Boosting the bridge pickup into the old Marshall Super Lead produces heavenly results. The Antiquity Custom Bridge model is plain and simply the smoothest-sounding single-coil I’ve ever heard overdriven into this environment. The highs are present and punchy but again, the harshest frequencies that sometimes sound a bit brash with single-coil pickups were gone. If you have a vintage strat and need some new pickups. The Antiquity Seymour Duncans will fit right in.
