Antiquity for Jazz Bass Neck
The neck position is wound "top going" and North polarity. The bridge position is wound "top coming" and South polarity. When used in combination with each other the pickups will be hum-canceling. Both pickups have the traditional pole spacing. The magnets are protruding from the top and bottom of the flatwork for a smooth even response. Each pickup is recreated to fit in your old classic and comes with black aged pickup cover, schematic, and mounting screws. Hookup wire is the classic "push back" c braid wire.

Antiquity for Jazz Bass Bridge
Like an old photograph, the tone of the Antiquity for Jazz Bass can spark memories of days gone by and the sounds of another era.
The Antiquity Jazz is a faithful reproduction of the originals. Warmth and mid-range punch combine to keep the pickups vintage integrity intact, and when installed in tandem, the neck and bridge pickups opposite polarity and wind make them hum-cancelling. This is where new eras and genres of music began and they are proud to offer a classic bass tone that doesn’t bend with the trends.
Hand made exclusively in Seymour's Custom Shop, the Antiquity Jazz Bass uses specially calibrated Alnico 2 rod magnets, vintage correct flatwork, cloth push-back wire, and is lacquered and wax potted like the originals.
