Modeled after a 1970s J Bass Pickup Set
Jazz Bass connoisseurs can tell you that the pickups Fender used in the '70s sounded different than what they had in the '60s. These are generally considered better defined for slapping and popping, with a round, hairy low end that fits great in a groove. Aguilar dissected several pairs of genuine 1970s J Bass pickups in the development of this carefully calibrated AG 4J-70 pair. Through a series of listening tests, Aguilar stumbled on just the right recipe of wire, windings, and magnets. Sweetwater bassists can confirm that these pickups do a great job at approximating the '70s sound. Order a pair today and see for yourself.
