The original boutique vintage humbucker pickups to make 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.
