The Aguilar 60's Style Jazz Bass Pickups are designed to have both clarity and warmth and will reproduce all of the dynamics and nuances in your playing.

This pickup set is modeled after a mid 60's single-coil Jazz Bass® pickup. Aguilar 60's Style Jazz Bass Pickups use all the period correct parts, including Heavy Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets. Aguilar developed a proprietary winding pattern to give these pickups great string-to-string consistency while sounding full and articulate. The pickups complement any bass and are a great match with Aguilar's OBP on-board preamps.

Available as a calibrated neck and bridge pickup set (also available separately) for four string basses. The AG 4J-60 Pickups are direct replacements for Jazz Bass® style basses.

The AG 5J-60 calibrated pickup set is a direct replacement in the Fender Jazz V and many other 5 string basses.

The AG 5J-60CL calibrated pickup set is a direct replacement in 5-String basses that require two long bridge sized pickups like Sadowsky, and Warwick basses.

The AG 5J-60CL accepts a narrower 17.5mm - 18.5mm string spacing.

Aguilar 5J-60 pickups
By George Sims from on 10/20/2016
I put these pickups in a Fender Marcus Miller 5 after having Nordstrand NJ5F 60's wind pups in. The Nordstrands were great in that bass, but lacked the clarity I wanted to hear.
These Aguilars installed gave me exactly what I wanted! They gave me a more clear cutting punchy tone, with tight and clear without the boominess. This is a very good jazz pickup!

Aguilar 5J -60 CL - Jazz Bass Sound
By Dan from on 6/20/2016
Warm, natural sounding Jazz Bass tones. I like a more round, smooth clear highs on the G string.

Passive tones are very desirable, great mid-bass, and smooth jazz growl.
Active tone brings more rich overtones on the upper harmonics, and help bring the 60 CL on par with modern sounding Jazz Basses.

I replaced the CL 70s which are very bright and have more immediate bite can be a little overwhelming at times. The G string notes sound a little thin in comparison to the 60 CL

Aguilar AG 5j-60
By Marco Topo from on 12/22/2013
Installed these on an American Deluxe Fender V, and I am very satisfied. Tone is like a vintage bass, and plenty of punch. Great clarity and growl.
Would consider adding a preamp OBP as well.
