Fans of the Jazz bass® know that jazz bass pickups built by Fender® in the 1970's sound very different from the pickups used in the 60's. The 70's versions have a brighter, more strident tone that is perfect for slapping, funk and R&B. They are also perfect for many rock styles. Examples of this sound range from the rock styling's of Geddy Lee to Marcus Miller's Jazz/Funk inflections.
Because pickup windings and materials varied so much throughout the 70's, we used several pickups from different years as our sonic models. Through a process of listening and prototyping we discovered the very small gradations of wire size and winding patterns that reproduce the bright and deep sound of the 70's jazz bass pickup.
The AG 4J-70 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-70 pickups are direct replacements for Jazz Bass® style basses.
