7. Nut

High quality bone nut to create the most consistent tone, string balance as well as precise string spacing.

8. Pickups

The DCB® pickups use dual ceramic bar magnets that provide a dynamic and responsive attack that works for all playing styles. These pickups have well-developed overtones and singing sustain in the body and decay of the notes.
The uniform magnetic field of a bar magnet allows each note to have accurate dynamic response and more harmonic content; no information is lost as the string moves back and forth. Our proprietary design takes these benefits to a new level that will bring out the best qualities in any instrument.

9. Bridge

Schaller Guitar Bridge 3D4: Patented 4-string bass bridge, analog to 3D-6. The roller bridge saddles reliably minimizes string breakage while maintaining intonation and tuning stability.

The OBP is Aguilar's most flexible onboard preamp design, providing +/-18dB of cut and boost at 40Hz, +/- 16dB of cut and boost at either 400Hz or 800Hz and +/- 16dB of treble cut and boost at 6.5 kHz. The OBP-3 has multiple wiring options, and can be wired with either a push/pull pot, mini-toggle or internal dip-switch for midrange frequency selection.
