I have an overwound 51 P Fralin in a placid blue Squier that is THE shizznit.

I REALLY dig a 10% over wound split Lindy.

Overall I like SD antiquities over Lindy Fralins, but can't say I've tried an SD Ant. 1 or 2 P pup.

Vintage Vibe is my choice. Pete Biltoft is about a mile ahead. I mean your pickup builder doesn't have to be a nuclear physicist - but it really doesn't hurt...

I haven't tried the Duncans but just put the Fralins in a plywood Peavey Milestone and they sound huge!

I just bought one and put it in the frankenfender I just assembled. Love it. BIG fan of the Fralin as well. Both do the vintage thing real, real well.

I've never tried the Duncan Antiquity, but I've had the Fralin in my 2004 P for several years, and I love it. It's the fourth pickup I've tried in that bass. The others were the stock Fender, DiMarzio Model P, and Seymour Duncan SPB-2 Hot. IMO, the Fralin is by far the best overall. It has a strong, gritty, aggressive punch, and yet nails a vintage vibe as well. It can cover just about everything. Even with Lindy's stock wind, it has about as much output as the heavily overwound Duncan Hot, but not nearly as much as the DiMarzio. The only split-coil I might like even more is the monstrous G&L MFD in my SB-2.
