Retrospec'd Antiquity pickups do not have the aged covers. They are still built to Antiquity spec's. They are for newer guitars that want vintage sound, but without the antiqued covers.
Take your Stratocaster on a ride through decades of seminal genre defining tones from rock, surf, country and blues with the Antiquity II Surfer vintage Stratocaster pickups. The Antiquity II Surf Neck provides that smooth and chimey bounciness that only a Stratocaster can produce. Our specially calibrated alnico 5 rod magnets and custom scatter wound coil give the treble attack a subtle sweetness without losing any of the harmonic sparkle.
Hand built in our Custom Shop, each pickup is aged to look and sound like a 1960s original. We use vintage correct blue/yellow cloth pushback lead wire, light gray bottom flatwork, and custom aged covers for just the right look. The Antiquity II Surfer vintage Strat pickups are all lacquered and wax potted.
