    I recently scored a pair of one or the other but how do I know which they are?

    Antiquities have aged covers/magnets

    They are fairly beat, but I bought these used though so they may have been aged or the may have came about their condition honestly.

    Is that really the only way to distinguish the two?

    Sparky,
    I cant remember if the Seths are hand signed by Seymour, but the Antiquities definitely are. I also seem to remember the Antiquities had white paper serial numbers on the bottom. Also it is probably academic, but the magnets are signed on the Antiquities too!

    These had stamped sigs of Seymour and Seth. So they're probably Seth Lovers then?

    Yes, blue stamp signature is a Seth. Great pickup BTW.

    I couldn't be happier with them. They've made this guitar my favorite now. I guess it was just the pickups that were keeping this one from being my #1. Who'da thunk it?
