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.

    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!

    I got this PJ set with 5% overwind and I really love the thicker tone. They are very beefy sounding and have more vibe than the American Ultra PJ vintage set I had stock in my 4 string. Very well tuned and easy drop in install.

  2. Joe Spence

    I didn’t know my bass could sound like this! I’m loving the pickups!!

  3. Tim Taylor

    The final piece of the jigsaw for me upgrading my Fender Player Series Jaguar bass was the pickups. I have changed everything now barring the body of the bass. It has a status graphite neck which made the sound ultra clean HD like. While i liked the stock pickups i opted on a set of Fralins and rather unconventionally did my own PJ set ordering an overwound 5% P bass pup and a normal wound split J pup. The P bass overwound has given a darker, fuller in life tone, yet with crystal like highs (compared to the stock) which is great with the graphite neck. The J pup lets me dial in that growl just enough with the pickup blend to make it a force combined with the P. I dropped the height of the P right down to about 5mm above the scratch plate and have the J quite close to the strings on the treble side. These pickups combined with the J Retro Pre amp i have in the bass are a fantastic combination. Would recommend Fralin pickups from now on whole heartedly!

    I recently bought a Fender American Performer Precision, but did not love the stock pickups and controls. I rewired the controls, installed a Fralin P-J Set with cream covers, and now it is hard to put this bass down. I love these pickups. They punch, they growl, and they keep the fundamentals clear and controlled. I highly recommend them and would buy them again.

    I recently purchased a set of P-J Bass guitar pickups. As I have come to learn, Lindy takes the time to go over your order to ensure you have chosen the correct pickup configuration, (over/under wound percentages) that will help you achieve “your tone”. I also bought pots to upgrade the electronics on my new Bass. Again Lindy assisted in helping choose the correct pots to compliment the pickups I ordered. I have recommended to my musician friends to check out Lindy Fralin pickups if they are looking to upgrade their Guitar or Bass guitar. I would purchase from LF again.

    I purchased these P/J pickups in white for my Fender Mustang PJ Bass and they are amazing!
    Even during the pandemic Fralin we’re excellent with shipment an communication and they were sent to Portugal!
    The pickups are noiseless and have such a warm and well-rounded tone.
    No better pickups to replace stock ones – I’m loving them!
    Thank you to everyone at Fralin, great job!

  7. Hank Van SIckle

    Wow. What a difference. Perfectly balance between the P and J pickups. Rich thick complex vintage tone with no mud and plenty of crystal clear highs without no harshness. Not Hi Fi sounding, but every frequency is there if you want it. Very responsive to hand position and dynamic touch. Every note is a little bit of plush lush textured full rich wonderful sonic goodness. It’s such a pleasure playing thru these pickups. They make me feel good all over. Everything I wanted and more. That old P bass is a brand new animal now.

    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.

    Just installed this in a Fender American Ultra PJ bass. I wanted to remove the active electronics from the bass and go with a full passive rig. After installing a VVTT wiring harness, and these pickups the bass has really come alive. Granted, I am more of a passive tone guy, but I’m sure these would sound good with the active set up as well. The tone is clear and punchy, excellent harmonics, and a throaty jazz tone on the bridge pickup. The P pickup has a vintage tone but sounds better to me than the stock Fender pup that came in the bass.

    I also had ran an Aguilar PJ configuration in this bass before putting the Fralins in and while I liked the balance of the Aguilar set, they had a more “polite” sound than the Fralins- which was a bit surprising frankly. The overwind on the bridge pickup seems to give these a more aggressive tone while still remaining balanced. Highly recommend this set!
