Retrospec’d — brand-new cosmetics with spot-on vintage tone
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.
