The calibrated Alnico 5 magnets of the Antiquity II Firebird vintage mini humbucker bridge pickup give the treble response an edgy sparkle—like an overwound single-coil—and the classic coil wind gives the bass response a humbucker-like tightness. The result is a pickup that sounds like the perfect cross between a single-coil and a humbucker with a growling tone.
The neck pickup’s treble response delivers clear single notes, and its low end will give your chords warmth and punch, making it a favorite for modified Telecasters. It’s as if these pickups have been sweetened with age—perfect for jangly rhythm, percussive hybrid picking, blues, rock, rowdy slide playing, and more.
The Antiquity II Firebird pickup is a drop-in replacement for Gibson Firebirds or any mini humbucker-equipped guitar, and it mounts with a standard Firebird mounting ring and 3-48 mounting screw, like the originals. Its custom-aged nickel cover makes it a great match for well-weathered, road-worn instruments and new “relic’ed” models alike.
Staying true to this type of ’50s-era Gibson and Epiphone pickups, these vintage mini humbuckers are not wax potted, which takes you right to the edge of harmonic breakup and sustaining feedback. Our Antiquity II Firebird vintage mini humbucker is faithfully assembled with the same materials as the original Firebird pickups, and it is wound to the original spec.
