New York, NY — Aguilar is pleased to announce the AG 4M/J-HC and AG 5M/J-HC pickup sets. These calibrated sets include one of Aguilar’s AG 4M or 5M pickup for the bridge position and the AG 4J-HC or 5J-HC pickup for the neck position.
The AG 4M and 5M humbucking pickups are wired in parallel to recreate the classic Stingray® tone - crisp treble, articulate midrange and thunderous lows. They feature 42-gauge Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets. Gard Lewis of Roscoe Guitars says the AG 5M pickups have "all of the grit and grind of a classic Stingray® pickup, but with more even string-to-string response and tighter lows."

This pickup has a split-coil design that utilizes Alnico V magnets and 42-gauge Formvar wire – 43-gauge Polyester/Nylon wire for the AG 5J-HC – for classic Jazz Bass tone...
