Pristine Looks. Vintage Tele Twang.

Tailor-made for classic ’50s-era Telecaster lead tones, Seymour Duncan’s Retrospec’d Antiquity Tele pickup delivers the authoritative bite that you’d expect from a vintage Telecaster single-coil, but with a non-aged look that’s made-to-measure for modern instruments. Plug in, and you’ll experience classic Tele snap and twang, while custom-calibrated hand-ground Alnico II rod magnets eschew unpleasant icepick frequencies for sweetened highs that must be heard to be believed. This pickup includes a vintage-correct ferrous bottom plate, enabling you to achieve classic Telecaster breakup that teeters on the verge of feedback. The Retrospec’d Antiquity Tele pickup was hand-fabricated and scatter-wound in Seymour Duncan’s Custom Shop with vintage-style pushback cloth wire, and has been lacquered and wax potted for squeal-free performance.

Ever since the 1990s, Seymour Duncan’s Antiquity line has been the go-to replacement pickup for vintage and relic’d guitars. A number of us here at Sweetwater have dropped a set of Antiquities into our prized classics, as the aged look, tone, and response of these pickups are a perfect match for vintage-style instruments. And why is that? Well, Seymour Duncan has been in the business for a long time, with a 40-plus-year archive of pickup designs to draw from. That’s why Antiquities are so spot on. Retrospec’d Antiquity pickups exhibit a sound and performance that’s identical to their predecessors, but they eschew the aged appearance for a pristine, brand-new look that’s a perfect cosmetic match for your modern guitar.
