    Default Is the antiquity jaguar a flat pole antiquity surfer?

    Kinda want to try out antiquities, but I like pretty flat fretboards.

    IIRC if you look at the blueprints, the Jaguar pickup has a narrower/taller bobbin than Strats. I use Jaguar pickups (not antiquities) in a Mustang of mine, and have used them in Strats- they fit and sound fine.

    You can always order a flat Antiquity, too under the Shop Floor Custom program.

    I was just about to post the same. I use the regular Ants with a 12" radius, but you can certainly order them with flats.

    Cool, I didn't know that you could get 'em with flat pole pieces. Sounds like the jag pickups are a viable backup option if that falls through.

    They're not the same lol. They all sound differently. Strat, jag, mustang, duo sonic.

    I'd argue no two pickups even sound the same among *the same model* - I've had several sets of Duncan SJAG-1 pickups, and each had different sound characteristics while they all remained in the same DCR ball-park (with expected fluctuations.) I'm probably pickier about how my Jaguar sounds than any of my other guitars, so to me those were differences I didn't even need to do a side-by-side to hear - although they're all low-ish output Fender singles, so you can pretty much use them for the same thing anyway. When you get to the original Fender pickups, there is even more potential fluctuation since things changed at-whim on Strats, let alone the minute differences the Mustang/student series pickups had, and the Jaguar which is a different sized bobbin in the first place.

    They function the same but they're voiced differently. It isn't variation between the same model.
