Classic Firebird neck tone that strikes a unique balance between single coil clarity and the low end tightness of a full sized humbucker.
There’s nothing like the sound of a great Firebird neck pickup. The treble response delivers nice, clear single notes, and the humbucker-like low end will give your chords the warmth and punch that makes this neck pickup sound as if its been sweetened with age. Its perfect for jangly rhythm playing, and percussive hybrid picking.
The Antiquity II Firebird pickup is a drop-in replacement for any Gibson Firebird, and mounts with a standard Firebird mounting ring and 3-48 screw, like the originals. Its custom aged nickel cover makes it a great match for those well weathered, road worn instruments. Staying true to the 50s era Gibson pickup, these humbuckers are not wax potted which takes you right to the edge of harmonic breakup. It is faithfully built with the same materials as the original Firebird pickups, and is wound to the original spec.
Try this pickup in the neck of a modified Telecaster for increased versatility and Nashville grit.
