The Fender Precision® bass provided the big, round tone found in almost every hit song from the 60's. To create a pickup with that much vibe and feel, we studied the pickups from Aguilar President Dave Boonshoft's personal 1963 and 64 Precision basses.
The Aguilar 60's Era P-Bass Pickups use all the period correct parts, including Heavy Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets. These pickups have just the right amount of mid-range "nose" to cut through a loud rock band and give all the deep support one would expect from a great 60's P-bass pickup.
The AG 5P-60CL has a smaller cover and accepts a narrower, 17.5mm – 18.5mm string spacing.
AG 4P-60 Dimensions
- Length = 2.230"(56.6mm) Width = 1.100"(27.9mm)
Please Note: Aguilar does not supply screws with their pickups. If you require some, we carry them on our pickup screws page.
- Wire: Heavy Formvar, 42 gauge
- Magnets: Alnico V
- Leads: Single conductor, cloth-covered
Love the pickups!

Oh, also the pickup holes in my old pickguard (c 1971) were a little too small to fit the pickups. Rather than file on the vintage pickguard, I got a new black one; looks sharp!!
