Sold Separately Seymour Duncan Antiquity for 1955 Telecaster
|Using vintage techniques, each pickup is hand-fabricated and scatter-wound to re-create the beauty of an early '50s Tele® lead pickup. All parts of the pickup are aged and given the look of a pickup played for 40 years. After early production of the flat pole lead pickup for Telecaster®, the pickups were manufactured with a raised D & G pole for better string response and output. These classic pickups had great sound too, and Duncan wanted to re-create the look and sound of this classic. The pickups are Dun-Aged™ and come with mounting hardware, schematics, and tons of tone!
Vintage 55 Tele rhythm tone with a sweet treble response and a well-rounded low end.

The bass response is full and round, and will add richness to your chords, while the specially calibrated hand ground alnico 2 rod magnets, and custom coil winding give the treble a smoother, more musical attack. Its great for big, bold rhythm playing, and percussive enough for classic country-style chicken pickin.
