    I recently picked up an SX P bass to make into a sort of "vintage model" that will look and sound like a 50's-60's bass. I've got the looks part of it down, but now I'm down to pickup choice. I've had good luck with Seymour Duncan pickups in my other basses and in guitars as well, so I think I'm going to stick with them unless there's really a better choice.

    From what I find on their website, they make 3 models that might fit my criteria.

    The Basslines SPB-1 "Vintage", the Antiquity and the Antiquity II. What experiences have you all had with these? I would like the one I get to be hum cancelling but still sound vintage if possible. Out of these 3, which one would be the best choice on a P bass that will be strung with flats?
