Vintage craftsmanship with higher output for even fuller chime.
The Seymour Duncan Antiquity II Surf custom-bridge for Strat would be equally comfortable in the smoky clubs of Chicago's West Side as hanging ten at the Malibu Pier. The Antiquity II Surfer is hailed by many members of the Seymour Duncan User Group Forum as the ultimate pickup for vintage Strat chime and quack. Whether you play Blues, West Side Soul, Surf, or Jangle Pop, the Surfer has the sweet highs and percussive lows to give you and your Strat a Free Ride on the Way Back Machine without sacrificing output or versatility.
The Antiquity II Surf for Strat custom-bridge is for those players needing more output from the bridge position.
To some, this is craziness, intentionally creating an aged electrical component. But if you're like Seymour Duncan, and you appreciate the personal commitment and hand craftsmanship found in early electric guitars, then you'll want to capture that timeless beauty with an Antiquity pickup.

Comments about Seymour Duncan Antiquity II Surf for Strat custom-bridge (added output):
if you want a real upgrade for your strat, this is it. i reccomend all of the antiquity ii surfer strat pups, but that can get pricey especially if you are on a tight budget. as i said earlier, i have never liked the strat styled bridge pup (more of a p90 guy!), but this is different. if you get this pup, you will not be disappointed. play around with the overdrive levels, clean tones, picking dynamics, etc. i think you will be surprised.
i have never been a big fan of stratocaster style single coil pickups in the bridge position. however, i cannot imagine my strat with any other bridge pup. utterly fantastic. yeah, its still pretty bright. lots of high end chime when clean. cuts through the mix like a cleaver through butter. turn on the overdrive..... magic. a blues rock players dream. stays clear, but adds a massive punch. alot more midrange than a typical strat bridge pup. it doesnt not fit every musical style, but if you want a vintage sound with a little more "umph", this is it.
