The Aguilar hum-canceling pickups feature a split-coil design
that allows you to get any pickup level combination without
60-cycle hum - all while retaining the natural, organic tone of

neck pickup or solo the bridge pickup for that sought-after
midrange cut without annoying hum!

Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets for the big, dynamic tone that

street price of $189.00. The AG 5J-HC pickups will be available
shortly afterwards with a street price of $219.00.
