    bought a set on Reverb -Antiquitys strat surf II, haven’t installed them, & now I’m wondering( with a knot in my stomach),if their not authentic!! They came without a box, no bag, just the unused 3 pickups. They don’t have the numbered tag on them, I wondering if he slipped me some SSL-1’s & figures I’ll wont catch it!! Their definatly Duncans I HADbeen a Duncan dealer for years! Ya think after 8 weeks I can contact Reverb & state I think a fraud has been committed?? Can anyone tell me what a duncan Antiquity surf II SHOULD READ-Out????,,,,,

    The Antiq's I have all have the white label on the back with numbers and a hand written signature just like this pic.[​IMG]

    SSL-1's are stamped like this pic, Antinq's are not.

    The set in question is a lefthanded set with the pencil date 5-6-08 & have a silver label SWD CUSTOM SHOP SURF LEFTHANDED ! Gray bottom, I’ve only questioned them 8 weeks after I purchased but I hate getting ripped off!! And tho they were cheaper than amazon price, they weren’t free!! I supposed SWD STANDS for Seymour Duncan & being a lefty set of Antiquitys, came from his custom shop??? Did I get cheated??

    I don't have any experience with left handed pickups, didn't even know there was such a thing so I can't honestly say.

    They look fine to me. Why do you think you got ripped off?

    You didn't say they were left handed until your second post so how was anyone to know? Only trying to help but you obviously lack basic manners. Congrats on being the first to my ignore list.:)

    I supposed they dont have the numbered tags because they were custom ordered to have a left handed stagger pattern.

    To the OP, if you used to be a dealer, why are you asking us mere mortals? Answer Seymour Duncan's post, why do you think you got ripped off?
