P-J Set FEATURES:
The Fralin P-J Set includes our Stock P-Bass pickup, and our noiseless and rich Split Jazz Bridge. This set is noiseless in all positions, with a fat and rich tone. Our Split Jazz Bridge has a Left-Right coil design, which sounds better than stacked coils. The Fralin P-J Set gives you more snarl on your bridge and deep lows on your neck.
All of our bass pickups feature hand-built bobbins and hand-wound clarity. Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. This P-J Set consists of local fiberboard and USA-Made Magnets. We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.
- Original Fender specifications, with modern output
- Overwound Noiseless Bridge for noiseless operation across all positions
- 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
The Fralin P-J Set is the best sounding P-J Pickup Set you can buy. Alnico 5 Magnets and our hand-wound coils give this P-J Set an impressive range and articulation. Expect deep, rich lows and a top-end sparkle – all across a warm and fat midrange. The P-Bass pickup has an even balance across highs and lows. The compensated Split Jazz Bridge focuses more on a thicker midrange snarl. The volume is equal across all positions. The Fralin P-J Set will breathe life into your bass by extending its range and dynamics.
We use Vintage Specifications. Alnico 5 Magnets. 42-Gauge Heavy Formvar wire on the P-Bass, 43 Gauge SPN Wire on the Split Jazz Bass. Hand-made Bobbins.
P-Bass is 11K, Split Jazz Bridge is 11.6K.

Hello, about to order a stock PJ set for a older Ibanez SR400 Eventually will be my drop tune Bass. Will the stock pups be fine or do you recommend 5% overwind. Also would 250k pots be ok or do I need to go 500K I am hoping to leave it all passive. Thank you for your help

Hey Wayne, we recommend the Stock output to start as it'll remain clearer and more focused with the drop-tuning. We always recommend 250K pots on this model! Thanks for your question.

Hey Bryan, we're not sure! If you have the instrument handy, take a look at our dimensions here and here to double-check.
I’m considering putting your pj set in a Japanese made P/J Jazz Bass. I noticed in your previous questions you suggest a 0.02mfd cap…..my harness has a 0.047mfd Mallory cap….how will this affect the sound? The setup is master volume, blend control and tone ……all CTS 250k pots.

Hey Matt, the difference by switching to a 0.02 would be a more subtle tone sweep. The 0.02 won't go as deep into the high-end and midrange as the 0.047. That said, if you like your current tone, keep it!

Go the extra mile and combine our P-J Set with a Jazz Bass Control Plate!:
High end, quality pickups. Accurate, flat frequency response. Top quality build. I would suggest the 10% overwound on the Bridge position. The Neck position does not have the low end Hz reach, or the mid-high P-Bass presence peaks of the original pickup. The Fralin Neck position sounds tight, full, and clean when playing along with Highway Jam.
I was told by another pickup manufacturer it wasn’t possible to make a Jazz bridge pickup and a P-Bass pickup match volume. This set proves otherwise. I’m just a discerning player. In a “classic” setup I want things to look the part, but be built better and sound better than “classic” and that’s what this pickup set does. The bass guitar world needs more of this.
When I find a Bass that feels good in my hands, sometimes the electronics are subpar. I’ve used Fralin pickups before and have been thrilled with the results! My most recent project was upgrading a Squire Jaguar Bass with the Fralin PJ pickups. The Precision neck pickup added a LOT of horsepower! The Jazz Bridge pickup adds clarity when I blend it in. I realize I put more $ in electronics than the guitar cost, but now it’s Exactly the way I want it to sound! I’m a Happy Customer!
Punchy, articulate sound with warmth. Couldn’t be better. Thanks to all at Lindy Fralin.
