We know what you love about your P-Bass. That’s why we don’t take any of that away: we only give you more.

Fralin P-Bass Pickups are like our J-Bass® Replacements: they have a huge fat tone. Fralin P-Bass Pickups are fat, punchy, and round. The lows are deep and rich, and the highs are sweet and clear. The first thing you’ll notice when you install these pickups is how you can hear more of your P-Bass. You’ll hear an extended low-end and a rounder top-end. These pickups are very vintage sounding, but with modern power.
- For an era-authentic 50’s tone, use our “Stock Wind”, or, choose “N/A” under output preference
- For a thicker midrange and fewer highs, choose +5%. This will reduce the highs by 5%, and increase the lows and mids by 5%.
- For an even thicker tone than the +5%, you can opt for +10%. This is perfect for anyone looking for an aggressively strong midrange and dark tone. Perfect for balancing out a bright sounding bass.
- If you’re looking for a little cleaner tone, use our -5% wind. This will increase the highs by 5%, and decrease the mids by 5%.

Our recommended Pickup Height is 1/8" on the Bass Side and 1/16" on the Treble Side. Measure by holding the corresponding side down at it's highest fret and measure from the bottom of the string to the top of the pole piece.
I am looking for a P bass pickup that has the growl of a 70's P bass. I have used Seymour Duncan SPB-3s in the past and like them but want to use a Fralin pickup on this build.
