Product Description

Built in Seymour Duncan's Custom Shop, the Antiquity Humbucker is 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.

Each Antiquity humbucker is built in our Custom Shop and aged both cosmetically and magnetically to simulate the wear and tear that a pickup goes through after decades of playing. The mold we use for our butyrate bobbins was created by the same factory that built the original P.A.F. 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. 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. For that unmistakable vintage mojo, we wind every Antiquity humbucker on Seymour’s original Leesona winding machine from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI. Every bottom plate & bar magnet is signed by Seymour to guarantee that you are getting an original Seymour Duncan Antiquity.

Killer pickups

Product Review

I put them in my 2002 les Paul classic premier plus and they really sound like a set of pafs I have had some real pafs and they sound just like them. I play blues rock a lot and they bring out the guitars tone. I did add a nylon nut to and I’m in 59’ heaven now

Great clarity

Product Review

These pickups have great clarity and you can really pull off some single coil esque tones. I was actually really surprised with the neck pickup and I'd definitely recommend these. I put them in my Gibson Sg standard along with a new style 50's wiring harness, they really brought the guitar to life.

The best humbucker I've ever played.

Product Review

As usual I read a bunch of reviews on humbuckers before buying. I've also done pickup swaps in the past and sold them. I picked these because I wanted something that was as close to an original paf as possible and on demos these just seemed cleaner(not in terms of gain but like airy and open not muddy or dark) than others. They arrived fast as usual and I was very impressed with SDs packaging. All hand signed etc. I put these in while doing a wiring replacement on my les paul which included cts pots and some vintage sprague oil caps of ebay. I've never been this happy with a set of pickups. I'm running it through a 5f1 based amp I built and an orange closed back 2 12 and it's just ridiculous how great it sounds. Some people say it shines in the middle position over any other but honestly it just depends on what I'm playing. They all sound great. Buying this made me want to have more guitars so I could but different combos of these pickups. I think AMS should carry the firebird pickups as well.
