$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.

    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!

    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!!!

    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.

    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!

    RIGHTEOUS

    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.
