Aguilar AG 5J-60 5-string J Bass Pickup Set - '60s

Sale price Price $189.00 Regular price $249.00


Modeled after a 1960s J Bass Pickup Set

If you're looking to add some '60s vibe to your J Bass or similarly spec'd 5-string, check out this pickup set from Aguilar. Warm, punchy, and articulate, this calibrated pair is painstakingly modeled after a set of single-coils taken from a mid-1960s Jazz Bass using period-correct components - including the same heavy formvar copper wire and Alnico V magnets known to be used during that time. Aguilar's proprietary winding pattern gives each pickup good balance between strings for a tone you can take straight to the studio or plug into your favorite vintage amp.
