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.


Lead Time

A Lead Time of 1 Week is just an estimate. Lead Times are subject to change depending on the current shop capacity and size of the order. We will always try to complete your order quicker than the stated lead time.


Due to the nature of Raw Nickel, Raw Nickel may contain slight cosemetic defects or abrasions.


We recommend using 2-Conductor With Shield Lead when purchasing a single pickup. 2-Conductor lead allows you to reverse the phase should you have phase issues. Learn About Lead Choice

Tonal Graph for P-Bass:

The tone graph below for our P-Bass features Lows, Midrange, Highs, and general Output.


Attack: Soft & Round

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%.

    I have several pickups made by Lindy. I especially love the Pbass +5%. This is the best pickup for roundwound strings! After years of trying different brands, I always come back to Lindy. It is by far the best balanced pickup. The low-mids are “woody” and full. The highs sing wonderfully and the pickup gain matches the pedals perfectly. One of my Fender Custom shop and my US Lakland 44-64 carry the same pickup. Each bass has its character, but Lindy gives me the performance. Awesome products! Also own a very old stock wound for my flatwound bass… Just perfect!

    My all time favorite pickups. I now have them on six of my highest end basses including a Mike Lull and a Fodera. They make Any bass sound better.

    It is perfect. I used this Precision pickup with standard wind in a P/J bass that I have. (Pickup in correct precision position). I had convinced myself that I wanted the overwind, and I talked myself out of it, and I could not be happier. There are many opinions on pickups, and things are so subjective: amp, strings, cables, flats, rounds, mutes, your hands, preamp….bottom line is: put some Fralin pickups in your bass and focus on other things because it really does get any better. Fat, clear, round, even. 100% happy.

  6. Steve Wild

    After trying a lot of P-Bass pickups looking for the sound I hear in my head I finally found them in Lindy Fralin’s 5% overwound. I purchased this second set for a custom bass I am building for a friend and bass player that I really look up to. She wasn’t sure what she would like so I chose these. The bass sounds fantastic. I can’t wait to ship it to her. I’m sure she will love it.

    They sound great

    After reading several reviews, I ordered P-bass pickups with 5% overwind as recommended by a customer and I am extremely pleased with the sound. My Sire P-bass now has the classic sound that I hear in my head whenever I think of how a P-bass should sound. Nothing beats that. Installation was straight ahead and simple as was the ordering process. Thanks to everyone at Fralin pickups for helping me achieve my sound and congratulations for creating such a great sounding product.

    I rarely give reviews five stars. Though the pick ups were pricey when you add up import tax, the sound is fantastic my Squier classic vibe 60’s, which already sounded quite good, has come alive. It’s difficult to describe but the clarity and attack of the notes. It’s just better even when using a mute the attack is fantastic

    Put these pickups into a 72 (stock) and a 74 (+5%) P basses to replace a hotter pick up that was in both that lacked fidelity to my ear. Both basses now sound great! Very clear very full note bloom across all 4 strings. Played a show on Sunday with the 74, and I was super happy with the tone through my SVT rig; great sound! Super Happy, as always, with the Fralins.
