The Antiquity for Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups deliver the clear, smooth, spanky tone that made these guitars so well loved. We build them with vintage-correct construction, complete with the proper size pole pieces that extend slightly through the baseplate. The flat pole pattern also helps to give you the nice, even string balance that is so characteristic of the Duo-Sonic—great for both chording and fingerstyle playing. Use these as replacement pickups for your original Duo-Sonic or to add mojo to a modern one. Fender has reissued the short-scale 6-string that has long been a favorite of alt-rockers, and these hand-built Custom Shop single-coil pickups are the perfect upgrade. The Antiquity for Duo Sonic uses untumbled Alnico 2 rod magnets, a custom coil wind with heavy formvar wire, and cloth push-back lead wire. Each pickup is lacquered and wax potted.
Our Antiquity for Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups are the perfect upgrade to a beloved classic 6-string. They feature a flat pole pattern to create an even, sparkling single-coil pickup tone.
