New York, NY (August 23, 2013) -- Aguilar, the leading edge USA manufacturer of high quality bass pickups, is pleased to announce the AG 5P-60 five-string P-Bass pickup and AG 5P/J-HC hum-canceling pickup set. The AG 5P/J-HC set brings together matched five-string Precision and Jazz-style pickups including Aguilar’s AG 5P-60 P-Bass pickup and an AG 5J-HC bridge pickup.

After the massive success of our four-string AG 4P-60 we knew we had to bring the AG 5P-60 to fruition.”
