The Seymour Duncan Antiquity Tele Lead/Bridge pickup provides classic twangy 50s Tele Lead tone, custom aged for a smoother treble response. The Antiquity Tele Lead will give you that early 50s Tele tone, but with the high end sweetened by the custom calibrated hand ground alnico 2 rod magnets. What you get is the classic Tele twang and snap, but with a treble response that is nice and bright without being piercing.
Like the originals, the ferrous bottom plates are not wax potted for that breakin' up Telecaster twang tone that is just on the verge of feedback. Each pickup is hand-fabricated and scatter-wound in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop, and all parts are 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, like they were in the 50s.
