Lindy Fralin P-Bass Pickups are clean, clear, and articulate. They are designed to enhance everything you’ve come to love about your P-Bass: Fat and Punchy with a huge, clear bottom-end.


Instant Thunder, Instant Brilliance.

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. We use USA-Made AlNiCo V magnets and 42-Gauge Heavy Formvar wire to give an era-authentic 50’s tone, only thicker. Fralin P-Bass Pickups offer a significant upgrade. At Fralin Pickups, we believe the best sound comes from the the highest quality materials available, not fancy gimmicks.


  • Original Fender specifications, with modern output
  • Superb articulation for clean and clear tone
  • Designed to be even across all frequencies
  • USA-made Alnico 5 Magnets for optimal tonal balance and output
  • Hand-wound with our “Sectioning” technique for unique, dynamic tone
  • Hand-built fiberboard Bobbins for unrivaled quality control
  • 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects


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 less 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%.


  1. What output do I choose? Good question. For the most balanced tone between highs and lows, go to the Stock Output, which is a replica of the earliest P-Basses. If you’re looking for a thicker and darker tone, opt for the +5% Output. If you’re looking for a cleaner and more articulate sound, opt for the -5% output.
  2. How do I orient the pickup? We always recommend installing with the Black Lead coming out of the treble side.
  3. Do you have Foam or Mounting Plates?  As it turns out we don’t. You can use the styrofoam wrap the pickup was shipped in to mount the pickup – we use that all the time.

    I replaced the original pups in my 76 P with stock LF P-bass pups and it was like the bass was reborn. Incredibly open, present tone…just amazing.

    Just got the 5% overwound a couple weeks ago, installed it in my Mexican Fender P-Bass and I’m 100% satisfied with it. Beefy lows, punch in the mids, clarity in the treble, and that “signature P-Bass” vibe: just what I was yearning for. The overall output is strong, without being too hot/out of control. Thank you, Lindy Fralin!

    The pickups in my 59 P-bass were really starting to lose their gain. I’ve had good experience with Fralin pickups in the past. So beforeI decided to rewind them and diminish their value I decided to try the Fralin 10% overwound pickups. My pre-CBS P-bass has never sound better. It had full gain and full on P-Bass tone with lot’s of grunt. I wish I made this move years ago. I ordered the pickups with the cover removed and the new pickup slotted right in.

    Guys these pickups are awesome! I chose the +5% output to put in my Fender Precision American Standard to diminish the highs a bit while giving a sweet boost to the lows and mids and they did just that. The Fralin pickups brought out everything that’s beautiful about a P-bass and I am very satisfied. No issues with the installation and the customer service was very good! Highly recommended.

    Compared to the stock Fender set, my bass now feels three-dimensional. I can hear an added clarity and bite in lows, mids and highs alike. Very strongly recommended for any player looking to really bring out the voice in his or her P. Bass.

    I had a set of p-bass pickups custom made and I couldn’t be happier with them. The guys at the shop went over all of the options with me and helped me select exactly what I needed to get the sound I wanted. They came out perfect! Thanks guys!

    This pickup is great….the bass I traded for awhile ago was 95 mim p (already had the fralin in it!)…It soared as soon as i put labella 54 flats

    Now i got a warmoth neck on the way to increase the sustain even more!

    Long story short…BADASS PICKUP LINDY!!!

    Another great experience with Lindy’s pickups. I replaced the stock pickup in a 1995 Peavey Fury with a stock winding P-bass pickup and the change has been *very* satisfying. The pickup sounds warm, articulate and—I struggled a bit for the right words here—delightfully organic. There is a distinctive harmonic content that has been pleasing me no end. If you’re interested, I’ve also got fresh CTS pots (250k audio taper volume, linear taper tone, and a nice new orange drop .047 microfarad capacitor) and Labella 760FS Deep Talkin’ flatwounds on this bass. Great pickup!

    The sound of my bass changed a lot. The sound level is much higher, but at the same time also clear. I’ve perceived a great change when I use higher notes, that now can be heard very clearly.

    Lindy Fralin for the win! I’ve had Fralin pickups in my J Bass for years. I don’t know why I didn’t immediately put one in my P Bass when I bought it. The tone was immediately better. Tight punchy lows and mids and crystal clear singing highs. If you love that classic Fender sound you can’t go wrong with Fralin pickups!
