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.

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

I would check our dimensions to make sure our pickups will fit your bass first. If that works, check your Fingerboard Radius - that will tell you whether or not you need Raised Centers.

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