The Antiquity II Jaguar uses calibrated alnico 5 rod magnets and a custom coil wind to give you a bright, focused 60s Surf tone.
The mid-’60s Jaguar was an important part of the Surf sound for dozens of Southern California bands, and was heard on countless TV and movie soundtracks. This pickup recreates that classic sound. Our custom Antiquity aging process adds a sweetness to this pickups top end, while retaining its bright, chimey focus, even if you are playing through a wash of reverb.
The Antiquity II Jet Jaguar neck pickup is wound RWRP so that, when used together with the bridge model, they will be hum-canceling.
This pickup is a drop-in replacement for any Fender American Standard sized Jaguar pickup, and will fit into the existing cover and claw.
Hand built in our Custom Shop, these pickups us hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, a custom coil wind with heavy formvar mag wire, vintage-correct bottom gray flatwork, cloth push-back lead wire, and they are all lacquered and wax potted like the originals.
