Seymour Duncan Antiquity I & II Bass Pickups

Seymour Duncan Antiquity

Antiquity™ : The 50s Series

"The 50s marked the birth of rock n roll and Antiquity pickups capture the tone of the era. Each Antiquity pickup is hand-crafted in Santa Barbara from the same materials and the same production techniques as the originals. I hand wind each single coil pickup using a “scatter wind” process that captures the original winding patterns in a way no machine can duplicate. The bobbins are carefully aged and impregnated with fine dust particles, the Alnico II magnets are ever-so-slightly demagnetized, and the wire and insulation are treated to duplicate the tempering of years of use. Of course, all of this is done in order to accurately replicate that unmistakable vintage tone of the early pickups in a way that could never be done with a mass production process."

Seymour Duncan Antiquity II

Antiquity II ™ : The 60s Series

"The 60s were ushered in with the sound of the surf and hot rods. They hit screaming adolescence with the British invasion. And they came of age with a three-day music festival, the likes of which will never be duplicated. When I think about the 60s, I think about the music of the era. I think of daring surf guitar. Of jangly rhythms. And of one guy in particular who used to light his guitar on fire. With my Antiquity II series, I set out to recreate the sounds of the guitars and basses that were around when I first started playing in the mid-60s. Like the Antiquity series, I hand-build Antiquity II pickups in my Santa Barbara custom shop from the same materials and using the same production techniques as the originals. However, there are certain appointments unique to the Antiquity II series that make them authentic 60s repros. For example, you will find custom calibrated, Dun-Aged ™ , sand cast, Alnico V rod magnets with vintage-correct surface features, as well as the characteristic bone gray flatwork. Also the cosmetic and sonic aging isn’t quite as intense with pickups in the II series."
