    Hi ,
    Has anyone checked out the new Aguilar AG6J-HC pickups as replacements for the stock F-Bass BN-6 pickups . Can the coils be dropped into the existing BN-6 shells ? What other direct replacement pickups are available to get a fat, organic Fender jazz type tone in a BN-6 ? How about the Aguilar Super Singles ?

    Thanks in advance .

    Yes, they can, I plan to send mine to F Bass to be retrofitted soon. I have the 5-string version of these PU's in my F Bass VT5 and BNF5 and they are awesome.

    Cool !! Anyone have any idea if this can be done without sending the pickups (or bass) all the way to F-Bass ?

    Well, Marcel said I need to send them in and also mark the string positions.

    a tip: don't use stack coils pickups, if you want that kind of sound.
