The Antiquity II Mini Humbucker has a truly unique tonal character. Its midrange emphasis brings focus to the lows, and adds a gritty sweetness to the highs. Overdriven sounds break up nicely with a smooth, warm growl. Clean tones pop and ring with a zing that full-sized humbuckers struggle to match.
Each Antiquity II Mini Humbucker is hand built and aged to look and sound like the original. We use a hand-cut P90 soapbar cover-sized mounting ring, and these pickups mount to the guitar exactly like an original Les Paul Deluxe. Staying true to this type of ’50s-era Gibson and Epiphone pickups, these vintage mini humbuckers are not wax potted, which takes you right to the edge of harmonic breakup and sustaining feedback.
These can be used in any guitar with a Les Paul Deluxe or P90 (with our Tapped Mounting Plate) pickup rout.
