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 Aguilar 70's style Jazz Bass 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 for four and five string basses, the Aguilar 70's style Jazz Bass pickups are direct replacements for Jazz Bass® style basses.

The AG 5J-70 calibrated pickup set is a direct replacement in the Fender® Jazz V and many other 5 string basses.

The AG 5J-70CL calibrated pickup set 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-70CL accepts a narrower 17.5mm - 18.5mm string spacing.

Beautiful clear strong thick sound! Everything I thought they would be. Very happy! I paired these pickups with a J-Retro preamp and installed in my 73 Fender Jazz. I thought they might be a little too bright but its exactly what I was needing. Coupled with the new preamp I can get plenty of jazz growl with everything set flat, Marcus Miller slap sound for days with Bass and Treble boosted, and can get Robbie Shakespeare dub if need be with bass boosted and slight mid cut. Very very happy client!
