Thanks for the input guys. Such a tuff choice.
I want the cleanest and sweetest one. I don't play anything dirty so how they perform dirty isn't a concern for me. There's a clip on youtube of a Ant vrs burstbucker pro and the ant clearly won IMO. The clean tone of the ant is enzactly what I'm looking for.
Seymour Duncan Antiquities & Gibson Burstbucker Pros humbuckers demo/comparison - YouTube
On my quest to find a new set of humbuckers for my Les Paul 50's tribute I've narrowed it down to the seth lover or antiquity set from seymour duncan. I want something that will really shine when played through my new Twin Reverb. Squeaky clean and classic.
I realize that the seth lover and antiquity are both seth lover designs. What is the major difference?? Obviously one is aged to look old a weathered. I actually think the aged antiquities would look great with the vintage sunburst on my Lester. But looks don't sing. I don't play any OD stuff ever and clean through a twin is my thing. Duane eddy, Luther perkins ( Johnny cash stuff), some don rich, Hank Sr instrumentals, surf, ect ect. No....I don't need a telecaster. I find my les paul does all this stuff great along with the twin. Just looking for a different set of buckers to really dial in that classic tone.
