Make Your Five String Bass Sound Like a 1963 Fender Jazz
Aguilar introduce the AG 5J-60 pickups 02-Sep-10
Modeled after a mid 60's Jazz Bass pickup, Aguilar say that the AG 5J-60 pickups bring the dynamic and sought-after tone of a 1963 Fender Jazz bass to today's five string basses. The AG 5J-60 uses all the period correct parts, including Heavy Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets.
Aguilar tell us that they have developed a proprietary winding pattern to give these pickups great string-to-string consistency while sounding full and articulate. They say that the pickups complement any bass and are a great match with Aguilar's OBP on-board preamps.
The AG 5J-60 calibrated pickup set is a direct replacement in the Fender Jazz V and many other 5 string basses. Single Neck and Bridge pickups are also available. Specs:
