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

Want to learn more about our P-J Set? Here's all the information you'll need:

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.

General FAQs

Here are quick answers to common questions we get:

  • What Ohm Readings does your P-J Set have?

    Navigate to our Tech Specs Tab for complete Ohm Readings and more useful information.

  • Will this pickup fit my instrument?

    Check our "Sizing" tab for the size of the pickup. No Sizing tab? Check under the product image gallery for dimensions.

  • Is your Lead Time of 2-3 Weeks accurate?

    It really depends on the shop capacity at the moment, and the size of your order. Feel free to give us a call for an accurate lead time. We always try to underpromise and overdeliver.

    Our recommended Pickup Height is 1/8" (3.175mm) on the Bass Side and 1/16"( 1.5875mm) on the Treble Side. Measure by holding the corresponding side down at its highest fret and measure from the bottom of the string to the top of the pole piece.

    Fender Aerodyne. Yanked everything out and put new Mojo pots and . 47 mfd cap in. D’aderio semi flats (half rounds). I added springs over the screws cuz the foam I had just wasn’t stout enough and these don’t come with foam.
    Oh Wow!! The sustain on these is incredible!! I used to get lost in the mids but not anymore! Balanced from E to G, clear, noiseless! Made this bass sound like Fender should have made it originally – now she sounds as good as she looks! Customer service is outstanding! Fast responses to questions! So glad I spent the extra and went with Fralin!!!!

    Had a particularly bright bass I wanted to sell but the overwind had the exact desired effect. +5% neck with +10%, thunderous and clear.

    I love the Lindy Fralin P-J bass set. Amazing sound. Extremely flexible / versatile. Absolutely silent no matter where I set the controls. These are keepers!

  4. JP

    After replacing the stock preamp in my player plus I still needed to roll off the treble and crank the bass. Even then it was still thin for my taste. This set did the trick! I get really nice low end punch and a lot more usable tone from the pre. This is my second purchase from Fralin and both times I got what I was looking for.

  5. Eugene Lavenue
    Verified Buyer

    Got a PJ set for my Squier short scale Jaguar bass. The pickups fit perfectly without any needed modifications. My bass now has a greatly improved and balanced tone across all the strings (the stock pickups were a bit lacking on the D & G strings). Nicely done.

    I upgraded from the stock pickups on my 2014 Fender Aerodyne with a set of PJ’s. WHAT a Difference! I’ve been using flatwounds and these pickups REALLY add the Growl of a vintage 60’s Fender! These are the 3rd set of PJ’s I have added to my Bass collection. I’m a Very happy customer. Great Job Lindy Fralin Team! Keep up the Good Work! BC

    I be love my new pickups. They sound great!!

  8. Mark Rabin

    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.

  9. John Tompson

    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.

  10. 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!

    Punchy, articulate sound with warmth. Couldn’t be better. Thanks to all at Lindy Fralin.
