Aguilar, the leading edge USA manufacturer of high quality bass pickups, is pleased to announce the AG 4M and AG 5M humbucking pickups.
The AG 4 and 5M pickups recreate the classic Stingray tone while adding all of the characteristics that Aguilar pickups are known for – excellent string-to-string balance, consistency of tone and rich harmonic content. These pickups are wired in parallel to give players crisp treble, articulate midrange and thunderous lows. Paired with an onboard preamp, such as Aguilar’s OBP-1, 2 or 3, and bassists will have the ultimate in tonal flexibility.
Like all Aguilar pickups, the AG 4 and 5M pickups are wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory. They feature 42-gauge Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets and are a direct replacement for this style of humbucking pickup.
The AG 4M and AG 5M pickups will be available in March 2014. The AG 4M will carry a street price of $109.00 while the AG 5M will street for $119.00.
Since their release in 2010, Aguilar pickups have become the new standard for exceptional bass guitar pickups. Providing the rich, musical tone that Aguilar gear is known for, Aguilar pickups are used by top luthiers and bass players the world over. Whether you are looking for period-correct vintage flavors or the most modern tones; Aguilar has the pickup for your bass.
Your bass has a voice, let it be heard.
