The Seymour Duncan Antiquity Retrospec'd Tele Bridge pickup. FREE shipping anywhere in the USA!
At Seymour Duncan, we have a 40 year archive of data on pickup design, detailing every nuance, down to the smallest detail. This knowledge is what gives our legendary Antiquity pickups their authentic tone.
We’ve heard from many guitar builders and players alike, who wanted our Antiquity pickups with a new, pristine look, rather than an aged, vintage look.
So we created the Retrospec’d series. All the tone of yesteryear, in a brand new look.
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 for 40 years! Like the originals, the ferrous bottom plates are not wax-potted for that "breakin'-up Tele twang tone" that's just on the verge of feedback. The pickups are Dun-Aged™ and come with mounting hardware, schematics, and tons of tone! The hookup wire is the classic "p back" cloth braid wire.

Most pickups can't be returned once installed because of the installation process that requires soldering, etc. Seymour Duncan however offers a fantastic 21 Day Return Policy! Here's the details:
Seymour Duncan / Basslines offers our 21 Day Real World Exchange Policy on all new pickups purchased in the U.S. and some other participating countries, which states the following: If for any reason you're not satisfied with the pickup's sound or construction, return it and your receipt to your dealer, or direct to the factory within 21 days for exchange with another pickups of equal or lesser value. To do this, please just send us an email and include your invoice number and the new pickup you'd like to exchange towards.
