Why Antiquity by SD?

  1. Why would anyone want to buy these pickups, made by Seymour Duncan?

    Wouldn't flailing at pickups greatly reduce their reliability and lifespan?

    They don't really flail or abuse them. They just take some sandpaper to the pickup covers (which you can replace), and leave the screws out in the rain so they rust (and you can replace these, too). Other than that, the magnets, steel plates, windings, and wires are all like new.

    When I put Ant II's into my Jazz, I used the original Fender screws and covers and I'm happy as a clam.

  3. It's a cosmetic and sonic thing. If you have a bass or guitar for that matter that is either vintage or "aged" like the Fender Relics you can put in Antiquity's for the vintage look and from what I hear, the sound.
