    What kind of pickups are these? I've searched online but have not had any luck. PAFs keep popping up, but I know I'm not that lucky. Who's got the actual answer?

    The serial stickers almost look like Seymour Duncan antiquities but I don’t recognize the signature on the pickups themselves

    That is Seymour's signature.

    Oh sweet! According to Sweetwater's website, they're all signed by Seymour, which is interesting. Thanks for your help! I can look around online, but while I'm here does anyone have any experience with these?

    They are fantastic pickups. They're a great way to get that PAF tone and response without spending $5K for a pickup. All good PAFs (and copies) are fairly low in power, and are surprisingly clean for a humbucking pickup. A PAF in a Les Paul is sort of like a Telecaster on steroids. Roll back on the volume, and you can get a PAF bridge pickup to really twang.

    These are Antiquites, the sweetest PAFs around. Congrats.
