Prewired Jazz Bass Control Plate Info:

Want to learn more about our Prewired Jazz Bass Control Plate? Here's all the information you'll need:


Based on our best-selling Prewired Telecaster Control Plates and Prewired Pickguards, we decided to give the bass players some prewired love! Introducing the brand-new Prewired Jazz Bass Control Plate by Fralin Pickups: USA-Made quality, CTS® Pots, the rock-solid Switchcraft Output Jack, all beautifully wired and ready to install in a few minutes.

  • USA-Made control plate, with a Chrome finish
  • CTS® Solid Shaft 250K or 500K pots for unbeatable durability
  • Standard Jazz Bass wiring, with independent Neck and Bridge volumes and a Master Tone control
  • Wide assortment of Tone Caps available to fine-tune your tone
  • Incredibly simple installation involves soldering only 4 wires






Choose 250K Pots if you want the standard operation. This is what comes standard on most Jazz Basses. If you have dark-sounding pickups, or, you want to achieve a “crispier” tone, go with 500K pots.


Installation is incredibly simple. All you need to do is solder the pickup’s hot wires to the respective Volume Pot inputs, and solder the pickup’s ground wires to the casing of the volume pot. See below:

  • How long will my Control Plate take? Please give us 7-10 business days to build and assemble your Control Plate. All orders are made to order and wired by hand.
  • Can you wire it up without the Chrome Plate? As it turns out, No. If this matters to you, you can pull out all the wiring once you receive it to put it in your Control Plate. It’s just too time-consuming and unsafe to ship without a solid control plate holding everything together.
  • Can I return my Control Plate? No. Since these are so custom and made to order, all Jazz Bass Control Plate sales are final, and not available for exchange or return.
  • What if I don’t see what I want? Please use the “Notes” field on the checkout screen to type in any special requests. Use this field to describe how you want it wired as well if you wish to have anything customized. Please note that we can’t accommodate all requests.

    Top notch! First class components, beautifully made, packaged and delivered. Slotted right into my MIJ Jazz Bass, and does exactly what it says on the tin. Upgraded jack is nice and firm. Controls works great, and paired with the new Fralin pickups… Well what can I say! Still playing and smiling 🙂 Thanks again Linday and Crew

    VERY hard to get cord plug in and out. I have a control plate from you before and it works fine. This one does not well at all.

      Hey Denny, I’m sorry to hear you’re struggling with the PureTone Output Jack – these are a little stiffer than the Switchcraft Output Jacks. If you’d like us to replace it, email me at [email protected], and I’ll work up a warranty repair for you!

    The control panel and the choice of controls is the best. I put together a bass guitar kit, with Fender neck and body and this is the first Jazz bass I’ve owned and I love it. No noise whatsoever. Thank you Fralin.

    Blown away. The only thing I can say is I will be purchasing some more Fralin Products. Installed with Split Jazz Pickups in a 16′ Fender Am Pro, it’s better than a new bass. Best review I can give is – will buy more Fralin products without a doubt.

    Excellent quality and craftsmanship!
    The control plate installed on my new Fender CS 60’s Jazz bass with no issues. Sounds great and seems quieter than the original control plate.

    I purchased the J/B control unit. I ordered 250k pots at first but realized later I wanted 500k. The folks over at Fralin where there to help and changed my order appropriately. Shipping was slotted for 10-14 days but was here much sooner then that. On to the quality, quality seems top notch. The wires runs were very clean and the solder joints were also clean and they did no skimp on solder. The pot’s perform as expected and sound very nice. Over all a great experience and super product.

    Very solid component. The ‘Pure Tone’ jack is more snug than the one on my stock Fender Jazz plate, and the knobs have the right amount of resistance. I had this paired with Fralin’s Split Jazz pickups and the tone really shines. Love the made-in-the-USA quality too.

    I ordered control plate with the Pure Tone Output Jack upgrade. Everything seems really well made and functions perfectly. I have to deduct 1 star for the following reason. The plate did not line-up with the pickguard on my older Squier (bought years ago second-hand, date of manufacture unknown) Jazz bass. Since this is advertised as a no-return item, we ended up taking everything off the Fralin, machining out my old plate (which was metric) to accept standard specs of the Fralin and mounting everything on the old plate. So I now have a brand new plate that is of no use. No biggie and I love Fralin gear (I have the split humbuckers on my Japanese Strat and they are fantastic! ) but I think you should know about this issue of fit FYI.

    Nice addition to a cheap bass

    I got this to replace the original controls which were acting a little flaky and it was a perfect fit, looked great, and was easy to wire in. There was nothing to complain about here.

    This is an excellent vintage wired plate. I purchased it when I bought some upgraded Jazz pickups for a USA Geddy Lee because I wanted to keep the original parts intact in case I reverted the mod. Now that I have been using this along with a new set of Fralin Jazz Split Coil P/U’s (5% overwind on the neck), I have to say WOW. Just plain WOW. Fralin is the go-to brand for pickups. Took me a few years to finally pull the trigger on my first set, but I’ve since upgraded my PJ with a set as well. Since this review is specifically supposed to be for the Prewired Jazz Control Plate, a few comments- First it fits perfectly, looks original and is tidy. The wiring is clean, professional solder joints, and super (I mean SUPER) easy to install. The pigtails for soldering the pickups are well marked with plenty of “tail left in the pig” to facilitate easy soldering. Highly recommend this product. Cannot ever go wrong with Lindy’s products, as I am finding out. And as far as the tone goes- just stand by because it is absolutely exactly what the doctor ordered. Thanks, guys! John
