Seymour Duncan Antiquity Texas Hot™ Pickups for Stratocaster

I love these pickups. They are scatter-wound and seem so much warmer than the stock Fender Custom Shop pickups my Strat came with. The bridge pickup is hotter than the stock Fender Custom Shop Fat 50’s by a large margin but not so hot that bass response it lost. Since the middle pickup is reverse wound and reversed polarity one can expect noiseless performance in the second and fourth switch positions.

The stock Fat 50 output is rated at: 6.0K. Neck, 6.3K. Middle, 6.2K. Bridge.

The Antiquity Texas Hot™ neck position and RW/RP middle position: 6.3K., while the Texas Hot™ Custom Bridge pickup is: 9.7K.

To my ear these pickups accurately capture what I consider the epitome of single coil Stratocaster tone. While not for everyone I think these pickups are far superior to the stock Custom Shop Fat 50’s shipped by Fender on this guitar.
