The Seymour Duncan Antiquity II "Twang" Tele Set is a complete two pickup set that includes the Antiquity II Twang Bridge and the Antiquity II Twang Neck pickups. This set reproduces the vintage 1960's Tele sound with better attack and a stronger output.
The Antiquity II Telecaster Neck Pickup is an authentic, vintage correct reproduction of the original 1960's Telecaster neck pickup. This pickup delivers a clear, bright, balanced Tele neck tone. There is plenty of warmth, snap, and crisp detail that makes this a great pickup for players who use a hybrid picking style, or do lots of string bending.
The Antiquity II Tele Bridge Pickup is Seymour Duncan's tribute to the 1960s gray bottom Telecaster lead pickup. This pickup is bright and twangy with a slight softening of the treble response. There is plenty of snap and bounce of the low strings, and on the high strings this pickup gives you that classic Tele twang, but without the dreaded ice pick harshness.
The Antiquity II pickups use Alnico 5 rod magnets, wax potting and braided cloth connector cables, all hand-aged to product the look and sound of a 1960's Telecaster. The original Antiquity Tele pickups used Alnico 2 magnets, while this pickup uses Alnico 5 magnets for increased twang, attack and sustain.
