The Antiquity JB Jazz Set, is the ultimate Hot Rodded Humbucker Set. Articulate and bright, but sweetened with age in our Custom Shop.
The Antiquity JB Jazz Set represents the first of the 1970s-era pickups given the Antiquity treatment. These hot rodded humbuckers deliver a sound with rich harmonics, and a balance of sustain, distortion, and clarity, sweetened by the mellowing effect of aged alnico 5 magnets and years of simulated sweat, dust, and oxidation. That familiar tonal character is all there the bridge position upper mids that cut through so nicely, and the neck position warmth and articulation.
Each Antiquity JB Jazz set is hand built with the same original materials that we used to make them in the 70s, including long legged nickel silver bottom plate, maple spacer, original Jazz and JB model stamp, rough sand cast alnico 5 bar magnet, heavily aged butyrate bobbins, and vintage style push-back braided single conductor lead wire. The electronic and cosmetic treatments of our proprietary Antiquity aging process give these pickups the look, sound, and feel of a real-deal set of 70s Seymour Duncans.
