The Seymour Duncan Antiquity '55 Tele Bridge Pickup provides a classic spanky 50s Tele Lead tone but with raised D and G poles for better string balance.
After early production of the flat-pole Telecaster lead pickup, in 1954 Fender began to manufacture them with raised D and G poles to provide a more even string response and output for those guitars with a 7.25" radius fretboard. You get the same bright, twangy tone as the flat pole Seymour Duncan Antiquity Tele Lead pickup but with a little more edge.
Each Antiquity Tele '55 pickup is hand-fabricated and scatter-wound in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop, and all parts are hand-aged to give the look and sound of a pickup that has been played for decades. Seymour Duncan uses vintage style push back cloth wire, and they are all lacquered and potted in lamp black paraffin wax, just like they were in the 50s.
