Seymour Duncan Antiquity Humbucker - Bridge, Nickel
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. Seymour Duncan winds the bridge model a little hotter for better balance and added warmth, and, as with the neck model, uses 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 they use for their butyrate bobbins was created by the same factory that built the original PAF mold for Gibson! Other key features include 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, Seymour Duncan winds every Antiquity humbucker on an 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.
