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.



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!


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 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.


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


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.

    Hello, about to order a stock PJ set for a older Ibanez SR400 Eventually will be my drop tune Bass. Will the stock pups be fine or do you recommend 5% overwind. Also would 250k pots be ok or do I need to go 500K I am hoping to leave it all passive. Thank you for your help

    Hey Wayne, we recommend the Stock output to start as it'll remain clearer and more focused with the drop-tuning. We always recommend 250K pots on this model! Thanks for your question.

  2. Will this pickups work properly on a bass with an active/passive toggle switch?
  3. Q Will this pickups work properly on a bass with an active/passive toggle switch?

    Hey Bill,

    Yes - our P/J set will work perfectly with active or passive pickups.

  4. Is the P/J set available as 5-string?

    Hey Mike, thanks for your question. As it turns out, not at this time.

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

  8. 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!

    The best pickup replacement for fender

    So many people have a Fender or Squier bass that feels amazing to play but sounds meh in some way. Fralins are the answer. Swap those lame 90s pickups with these and give your old bass a new lease on life!

  2. John Dammacco

    Jazz Aerodyne – In an expected fashion, Fralin pickups delivered on time. Self-installation was flawless and very simple. This bass punches through. Total pro gear

    Overtones galore
    This is for the P-J set. I’m not a bridge pickup player as I always favored the deepness of the middle. For reference, I’m playing a Fender Mustang (30″ scale) through and Ampeg practice BA-110 finger style. I have been converted by this bridge pickup. The overtones are amazing. Great dynamics and sounds great at any volume. And it bumps like a bass should.
    The middle also is clear of mud and maintains the deep fundamental. I’m sure it’ll have it’s day of play as it does put a smile on my face. Together they both give that usual open woody tone, but damn those overtones.
    Also, these are not mid-scooped like modern pickups. They have life and allow me to EQ subtravily on my amp as opposed to additive. Much preferred.
    I’ll be eye-balling more pickups for my geetz in the future.
    For note, I researched many pickups before landing on these. No regrets, all smiles.

    Best pickups ever
    Put these pickups in my Fender PJ; they are fantastic. Noiseless and versatile. I paired them with a Mike Pope preamp. Wide range of tonal possibilities in passive and active mode. Highly recommended!!!

  5. Mike Martiniello

    Excellent pups! Great sounding pickups, well balanced. Would be nice if the lead wire was longer also would be nice if they came with foam mounting pieces at this price point

    Bass PJ pickups, unique personality.
    Bought a second pair for my back up bass. Pro-quality, Vintage sound, modern output. Upgrade worthy.

  7. Roy Wagner

    P/J Standard Wind Set

    Wow. Fantastic upgrade. What surprised me the most when I first played them was the clarity in the upper range of the neck pickup. Not treble-y but just a clear and clean tone. It completely blows away the P sets I have. As a set%2C they just worked and sounded great across the entire range unlike other sets I%92ve tried that seem to lose it as you move the balance towards the bridge. Thanks!

    I’ve been using the P pickup. So I knew I would like it. I was floored by the tone of the split J … just the right amount of bite. I installed these on an early 90s MIJ Fender Jass Bass Special.

  9. David McDowell

    I put these PJ pickups on my Precision Plus because of the reviews I had read about them. When I bought this bass the Lace pickups had been replaced with something else and they were extremely noisey. There was also no volume balance when switching from the P to the J pickup. All this was cured with the new Fralin PJ pickup set. The tone is just right, the balance between the pickups is great now, and now it doesn’t matter if there are flourescent lights, fans or whatever in the room, I don’t get that awful crackling and hum from the bridge pickup. Would I recommend these pickups to anyone else – you bet I would 150%. Thank you Lindy!

    I thought that I knew what the proper and righteous sound of a Precision of Jazz bridge position was…..until I installed your set, Lindy. The first note brought a smile and it continued through that evening and now a few weeks later, it is THE Sound. Good science, great workmanship, and a wonderful transducer of feelings into sound. Thank you thank you.
