From Seymour Duncan:

RETROSPEC’D SERIES:
At
Seymour Duncan, we have a 40 year archive of data on pickup design,
detailing every nuance, down to the smallest detail. This knowledge is
what gives our legendary Antiquity pickups their authentic tone.

We’ve
heard from many guitar builders and players alike, who wanted our
Antiquity pickups with a new, pristine look, rather than an aged,
vintage look.

So we created the Retrospec’d series. All the tone of yesteryear, in a brand new look.


ANTIQUITY HUMBUCKER:
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 hand built in our Custom Shop the way Seth
Lover did. 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 everyAntiquity humbucker on Seymour’s
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.
