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!

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



P-J Set INFO:

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

P-J Set 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

Overview

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.

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.

FAQs

  • What’s the difference between the Split Jazz and Normal Jazz Bass? The Split Jazz is a little thicker and darker sounding, with a tad bit more output.
  • Can I customize any of the outputs? Sure! Just request them in the Notes field on the checkout screen.
  • How do I orient the pickups? We always recommend installing with the Black Lead coming out of the treble side.
  • Help! I installed them, and they are out of phase! No problem. Just reverse one of the pickups’ leads in the control cavity (swap White and Black).
  • Do you have Foam or Mounting Plates?  As it turns out we don’t. You can use the styrofoam wrap the pickup was shipped in to mount the pickup – we use that all the time.

  1. I would like to replace my Delano PJ pickups with this? Is it possible? It seems like ypur PJ set is a little bigger? Please help / Martin

    1. Hey Martin,

      I’m not sure if our pickups will be a drop-in replacement without a bit of routing. Our pickups seem to be a slightly bigger footprint on all dimensions.

    Great. Throaty, full, and genuine.

    Perfect Set for Fender Ultra PJ

    These pickups have been an awesome upgrade to the factory set (which was not bad by the way). They are nicely balanced, with a smooth combination of growl and chunk- all very musical. I use them with nickel strings and love the overall tone when using either pickup (or both). Before putting these on, I installed a set of Aguilar PJ’s and while they were an improvement over the stock pups, these are head and shoulders better still. Have Fralin Pup’s in a Fender Geddy Lee Jazz, and this Ultra P; they are amazing pickups.
