New York, NY (November 20, 2012) – Aguilar is pleased to announce the AG 4P/J-HC hum-canceling pickup set. The AG 4P/J-HC set brings together matched Precision and Jazz-style pickups including Aguilar’s successful AG 4P-60 P-Bass pickup and the recently released AG 4J-HC bridge pickup.

Many P/J setups have pickups that are mismatched sonically – an overly deep neck pickup with puny bridge pickup tone. By way of contrast, the Aguilar AG 4P/J-HC is a well-balanced set that provides a flexible array of tones, whether using each pickup alone or in combination. Now you can get the thunderous lows of the neck pickup or the midrange cut of the bridge – or both - without 60 cycle hum.

Like all Aguilar pickups, the AG 4P/J-HC set is wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory and is a direct replacement for 4-string Fender P-Bass and Jazz bridge pickups. The pickups use 42 gauge Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets for the big, dynamic tone that Aguilar pickups are known for.

The AG 4P/J-HC pickups will be available December 1st 2012 and carry a U.S. street price of $185.00.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
