Fans of the Jazz Bass know that jazz bass pickups built by Fender in the 1970s sound very different from the pickups used in the '60s. The '70s versions have a brighter, more strident tone that is perfect for slapping, funk and R&B. They are also perfect for many rock styles. An example of this sound range from the rock stylings of Geddy Lee to Marcus Millers Jazz/Funk inflections.
Because pickup windings and materials varied so much throughout the '70s, Aguilar used several pickups from different years as their sonic models. Through a process of listening and prototyping they discovered the very small gradations of wire size and winding patterns that reproduce the bright and deep sound of the 70s jazz bass pickup.
The AG 4J-70 pickups complement any bass and are a great match with Aguilars OBP on-board preamps. Available as a calibrated neck and bridge pickup set (also available separately) for 4-string basses, the AG 4J-70 pickups are direct replacements for Jazz Bass style basses.
Wire: Enamel, 42 gauge
