New 5 String Bass Pickups from Aguilar

Aguilar Amplification has announced their new AG 5J-60 pickups for five-string bass.

Modeled after a mid 60's Jazz Bass pickup, the AG 5J-60 pickups bring the kind of dynamic and sought-after tone of a 1963 Fender Jazz bass to today's five string basses. The AG 5J-60 uses some of the best parts, such as Heavy Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets.

Aguilar developed a proprietary winding pattern to give these pickups great string-to-string consistency while sounding full and articulate. 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 five-string basses. Single Neck and Bridge pickups are also available.

You can't buy them yet, but they will be available sometime in September.
