The Seymour Duncan Antiquity II Surf RWRP middle pickup is designed to work in combination with the Antiquity II Surf neck and bridge pickups to deliver that sparkly Strat quack, with hum-cancelling in switch positions 2 & 4.
The Antiquity II Surf reverse wound/reverse polarity (RWRP) middle pickup will give you the same glassy tone of the standard wound Surf pickup when used on its own, but when put in combination with either the bridge or neck pickups, it will deliver that beautiful, bright in-between sound that Stratocasters are so famous for. The Surf RWRP is made with the same winding spec and aged Alnico 5 rod magnets as the neck model, but is reverse-wound/reverse-polarity to allow for hum-cancelling when used in combination with the neck or bridge.
All Antiquity II Surf pickups are hand built in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop, and are aged both cosmetically and magnetically to simulate the wear and tear that a pickup goes through after decades of playing. Each pickup comes with a specially aged cover, and the custom aged Alnico 5 rod magnets are specifically calibrated to deliver just the right combination of chime and sweetness. The decreased magnetism means less string pull, and that means more sustain.
What you get with the Antiquity II Surf RWRP is a middle pickup with a classic vibe and big mojo. Pair with the Surf neck pickup and Surf Custom Bridge model for the ultimate 60's Strat.
