PRODUCT OPTIONS:

Please Select Options Above To Display Add-Ons.

Raised Centers For Bridge?

Choose this option if you want raised center pole piece magnets on your bridge. This helps with string balance on fingerboards with a radius of less than 9.5 inches.

Neck-Sized Bridge

In some cases, Fender Mexican Jazz Bass will have an equal-sized Neck & Bridge pickup. We can make this for you. Measure your pickups, and if they are the same, check this box!

Notice

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

Recommendation

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

Lead Time

A Lead Time of 3 Weeks 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.

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.

Features:

  • 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

 

Sound

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.

    Hey Bryan, we're not sure! If you have the instrument handy, take a look at our dimensions here and here to double-check.

  2. 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!

  4. Hello! I have checked you wiring diagram. Would you please tell me the recommend value of each potentiometer? And also the value for the capacitor? Thank you.

    Hey Sherman, this is a great question. I'd definitely check our Sizing (under our sizing tab) and make sure the overall pickup covers will fit in the rout. I believe you should have no problems getting to fit, but it's worth double-checking! - Tyler

  8. What is the Split Jazz Bass Bridge Pickup output for this combination? Is it stock, 5% overwind, or 10% overwind?

  1. Billy Charles

    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!
