Aguilar Amplification is proud to announce the AG 5J-60 pickups for 5-string bass.

Modeled after a mid 60’s Fender Jazz Bass pickup, the AG 5J-60 pickups bring the dynamic and sought-after tone of a 1963 Fender Jazz bass to today’s 5-string basses. The AG 5J-60 uses all the period correct parts, including 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. These 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.

The AG 5J-60 pickups will be available in September 2010 and carry a street price of $189.00

Aguilar Amplification manufactures high quality bass pickups in NYC. Our goal is to make pickups that sound great and satisfy the most discerning bassists.

Aguilar pickups are used by many famous bass players including Justin Meldal-Johnsen (NIN, Beck, and many others), Anthony Wellington (Victor Wooten), Matt Taylor (Motion City Soundtrack), and Matt Novesky (Blue October). For more information, please visit: www.aguilaramp.com.
