    Default antiquity telecaster pickups bridge and neck

    well i just ordered the two seymour duncan antiquity pickups below for my telecaster

    anyone else have these and would like to comment - was thinking of getting the seymour duncan 54 pickup along with the matching neck pickup but was persuaded to get the antiquity .

    ((has anyone compared these to the current fender nocaster pickups)))

    thoughts are welcome

    Antiquity for Telecaster®: bridge / 11024-22
    I have a great time re-creating the beauty of an early '50s lead pickup Tele®. Using vintage techniques, each pickup is hand-fabricated and scatter-wound. All parts of the pickup are aged and given the look of a pickup played...

    Antiquity for Telecaster®: neck / 11024-21
    This neck pickup for Telecaster® guitars is wound as a full-sounding rhythm pickup. It comes with an aged, deep drawn cover for vintage looks and added coil protection. The neck pickup comes with schematic and mounting screws.

    Welcome to FT, g6120, I use an SD '54 in my Tele, and it does sound quite vintage. I've heard good things about the antiquities...I might try 'em some day. I wish we could compare the two.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    I haven't heard that particular set, but I have great respect for Seymour's products and have heard that his Antiquities line is a step up, and darn nice. Enjoy!

    Stay tuned,
    Stan

    How did these work out for you? Have you had a chance to play them much yet?

    well to be honest with you i tried the wiring first for this nocaster w/ original pickups


    changed the wiring to this below all three positions are useable w/ tone control

    POS.1- foreword position neck pickup
    POS.2 middle position - neck & bridge pickup together
    POS.3 -rear position - bridge pickup

    i used this cap from luxe
    cornell dubler - znw1p1 1 mfd 150 vdc paper in oil cap which were used from 1951-1952 in fender teles also 1 .001mfd cap

    liked the sound so much i could not see replacing the pickups found exactlty what i was looking to hear with the mod i made so i sent the pickups back for refund .

    the tone is to die for fabulous and highly recommended

    I have a lot of respect for SD as well. It was not the way in the past but the more I hear their different pups the more I say "wow not bad"

    I have the No-caster Fender CS pups in my Tele and they really blew me away, plus I got them real cheap on eBay about a year ago. Im not sure how much they are going for on eBay now but for a while after Fender upped all the PUP prices you could still snag Fender PUPs cheap on eBay new
