Bright, punchy, and aged to perfection, with added output to beef up your bridge position.
The Antiquity II Surf for Strat Custom Bridge pickup is wound to have extra midrange and output for a more versatility. We wind these 50% hotter for more mids, and then slightly soften the treble attack by degaussing the Alnico 5 rod magnets. It cuts through the mix much more easily than a traditional Strat bridge pickup, while still retaining that classic Stratocaster tonal character. Solos will jump out more musically, and chords will ring with the perfect amount of midrange sparkle.
All Antiquity II Surf pickups are hand built in our Custom Shop, and are aged both cosmetically and magnetically to simulate the wear and tear that a pickup goes through after decades of playing. Each pickup comes with a specially aged cover, and the custom aged Alnico 5 rod magnets are specifically calibrated to deliver just the right combination of chime and sweetness. The decreased magnetism means less string pull, and that means more sustain. What you get is a bridge pickup with a classic vibe and big mojo.Pair with our Surf RWRP middle pickup and Surf neck for the ultimate 60s Strat.
