$290.00

The Fralin P-J Set is the ultimate replacement for any bass with a P-Bass pickup in the Neck and a Jazz Bass Pickup in the Bridge! It utilizes our Stock P-Bass Pickups along with our Split Jazz Bridge to give you hum-free operation in all positions.

PRODUCT OPTIONS:
Clear

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.

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 More

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

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.

    Excellent
    Noiseless, and great balance across strings. Chords are no longer mushy. Much more usable bridge pickup than what I got from the factory. This is a winning set.

  2. Walter Linzell

    I just built a Warmoth bass with your PJ pickups. Wired them like you said in the diagram on the website and they sound wonderful! Thank you, Walter Linzell

    I bought an aerodyne because I love the body shape and all black with no pick guard looks fantastic unfortunately it didn’t look as good as it sounded. I shopped and shopped annoyed a local luthier and then ignored his geezer butler suggestion and went with fralins and couldn’t be happier. From highs to lows, percussive to melodic. They proved to me the impact pickups have on time is second to only the player. And the quality of sound is matched to the quality of the build as well. Nice wiring, routed perfectly, magnets evenly spaced with and options to overwind and raise poles. Buy fralins 1st so you don’t have to buy them 2nd,

    I bought a 5% overwound P and 10% overwound J set. I couldn’t be happier. I wanted low mid-bite and growl, less high-end clack, something this set delivers in spades. While stock windings deliver a more traditional sound, this set is more versatile when it comes to shaping low mids which is where I live. Using a blend pot rather than 2 volume pots gives these pickups voicings you do not get from a “stock” Fender, from warm Motown to Jaco punch. I’ve bought over a dozen sets of Fralins for bass and guitar over the years, they are sonically the best you can buy and I say that from 50 years of playing experience 😉

    The very first note played I could hear the difference of the pickups. It’s like, playing with a compressor only without it if you know what I mean. Every note played came out solid, clean and clear. Thanks to the people who work at The Lindy Fralin company, now I am a “ Happy Man “ sung by Chicago.
    Aloha and A Hui Hou, until next time

    Aerodyne replacements – Great sound. The Jazz pickup really adds to the overall tonal quality. Thinking of changing to flat wounds. This is my second bass that has a set of Fralins, best decision ever.

    Excellent replacement set for my ’77 Fender PJ
    These are some of the nicest pickups I’ve heard. They have given new life to my old ’77 Fender PJ fretless. No hum, no buzz. Worth every penny.

    Great pickups!
    I installed these P-J pickups in an inexpensive Fender Jaguar bass. They certainly live up to their description. Super quiet, even at full volume! Great warm sound and the Jazz Bridge pickup is actually useable. Even though they cost more than the bass itself, it was well worth it. I chose Fralin pickups because I also have Fralin PAFs in my Les Paul and Split Coils in my Telecaster (also amazingly quiet) and have been happy with all of them.

  10. PJ

    I dropped these into a 2006 MIM Fender P-bass about a year ago. Whoa! This was my backup bass and it was suddenly competing with my main! I’ve since turned the MIM into a fretless with flatwounds. It goes “Grrrr.” It’s badass. I went with the +5% and couldn’t be happier: growl, bottom end, and a top that doesn’t annoy. Love ’em.
