    So I think I'll put a Jazz/JB Combo in it.

    Can anyone tell sth about distorted Antiquities??

    Which would you prefer - the Antiquities or the Jazz/JB?

    Thanks alot,

    I love Both. But too me it doesnīt sound like youīre looking for a tonal change, which the JB/Jazz combo will most certainly bring with it.

    What seems to be the real question here, and itīs one only YOU can answer: DO the pickups squeal in your setup or not? Iīve had no problems so far, and Iīve been called a "GainPsycho" here before

    IMO, if itīs not broken, donīt fix it

    I have no opinion since I havn't heard the antiquities but I am considering them for one of my project guitars - would love to hear what you think after playing them. They get great reviews from what I've seen.

    Yep, my Antiquities are great at high gain as well.

    I've used an Antiquity bridge with my SLO-100 on high gain. Not a problem. I'd keep the Antiquity set.

    the jb has way more output and a more modern tone than the antiquitys, either sounds great but the antiquitys are made to sound just like a great vintage pup. i have a couple antiquitys and i havent had any problem with them squealing at high volumes or high gain. id try it before ya run otu and drop money on new pups
