Aguilar, the leading edge USA manufacturer of high quality bass pickups, is pleased to announce the HOT series of Precision and Jazz pickups – the Hot P (AG 4P-HOT) and the Hot J (AG 4J-HOT). They are direct replacements for 4-string Fender P-Bass and Jazz pickups.
With their larger, 16MM magnets and over-wound design, these pickups have a hotter output that loves to push the input of your amplifier with a tone that is big and loud with thundering lows. Despite their sonic onslaught, the Hot P and Hot J retain all the dynamics of your playing style. Dig in with a pick (or your fingers!) and all of the grit and nuance of your attack comes through without losing the midrange.
Like all Aguilar pickups, the Hot P and Hot J are wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory. These pickups use 42 gauge heavy Formvar wire and larger, 16mm Alnico V magnets for the big, dynamic tone that Aguilar pickups are known for.
The Hot pickups will be available February 15th 2013.
