Re: Antiquity pickups

I've heard the Antiquity HBs in an LP. They are PERFECT(nothing's really perfect kids, but they're spot on) replicas of PAFs. No idea for the SCs though. Never heard the parallel axis either.

Re: Antiquity pickups

I have surfers in a strat, and they nail the classic strat "sound".

Re: Antiquity pickups

the antiquities are more crisp, more sustain, and not as warm as the vintage noiseless.

Talking Re: Antiquity pickups

Old thread right!? Anyway finally got the antiquities in my strat. I got the Texas hot in the neck and mid, and the custom in the bridge. I think they are way better then the fender vintage noiseless. They have the punchy tone where as the vintage noiseless sound round and glassy.
