Lindy Fralin Original Design

(90 genuine reviews)


Lindy Fralin Split Jazz Bass Pickups offer a loud, clear and even response to four string bass players with no hum. This bass pickup allows you to get all of the Jazz-Bass vibe that you love, minus the hum. Being a hum-canceling Jazz Bass pickup, it’s fat, thick, and a little thicker sounding than a single-coil Jazz Bass.


Lead Time

A Lead Time of 1 Week 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.

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

Tonal Graph for Split Jazz:

The tone graph below for our Split Jazz features Lows, Midrange, Highs, and general Output.


Attack: Dynamic & Full

The Split Jazz Bass sounds like a single-coil Jazz Bass pickup, only thicker and darker. As soon as you plug in, you’ll notice the hum-free tone. Designed with a pronounced midrange, expect a thicker, beefier tone. You’ll find these pickups speak what you tell them to – soft and quiet, or digging in. Our Split Jazz Bass Pickups, provide authentic Jazz Bass tone with better articulation. We hand-wind these pickups using our unique formula to give them exceptional balance and tone. We offer (3) winding options to help you determine the perfect tone:

  • For an era-authentic 60’s tone, use our “Stock Wind”, or, choose “N/A” under output preference
  • For a thicker midrange and fewer highs, choose +5%. This will reduce the highs by 5%, and increase the lows and mids by 5%.
  • If you’re looking for a little cleaner tone, use our -5% wind. This will increase the highs by 5%, and decrease the mids by 5%.

    Blown away. The only thing I can say is I will be purchasing some more Fralin Pickups. Installed with loaded Fralin control plate 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.
    Also, when I inquired with some ignorant questions, top notch, great customer service and prompt response.

    Great communication with Lindy and crew. The pickups were easy to install and the buyer is ecstatic about the sound.

  3. Dennis Mentzer

    Good Quality. I like that I have more control over options of tone from both pick-ups. Notes are crisp and clear or warm and mellow, whatever my brain ,fingers and mood demand , these pick-ups deliver. They are a bit pricy, but a good buy.

    I recently upgraded my 2005 Fender American Jazz pickups to Fralin Split Coils, and the results are exceptional. Nice and warm, plenty of attack, and great sustain. I had the neck pup over wound 5% for a more balanced gain. I have learned that you get what you pay for, especially in musical equipment. I am delighted with my purchase! My order was fabricated sooner than the projected lead time, and the customer service was outstanding. I highly recommend Frailin as a first class mom and pop American made business. Thank You!!!

    I’ve played a P-bass for years and recently bought a Jazz bass to add some variety. The J-bass looked and played great, but sounded weaker than the Precision. I wanted to be happy with both, I wanted them to have different sounds that I equally loved…but I favored the P-bass. I called the team at Fralin and they recommended a set of their Overwound Split Jazz pickups. These pickups delivered big time. I can’t put my J-bass down, these pickups took it from good to great. I am so pleased, I will soon order a Fralin pickup for my P-Bass. Money well spent.

    10% Overwind on both it was my choice. A killer sound! Fralin is the Goat!

    Absolutely blown away by how punchy and articulate this set of pickups is. Classic J-bass tone with a bit of extra mojo, and perfectly noiseless.

    I’ve had a set of your single coils in one of my main basses (a 90’s American Jazz) for years and nothing sounds better, both live and in the studio. Fat, warm, punchy, even…just everything a Jazz should be, both neck and bridge, soloed or together. I recently acquired a late nineties Mexican fretless Jazz that is a good instrument save for the anemic stock pickups. It was a no-brainer to go with the Fralins but for this one I decided to get the splits as I know I’m going to spend a lot of time with that bridge pickup soloed. I almost went with the singles despite the issues with hum because they just sound so good and I’ve never heard a noiseless Jazz pickup that could really do that but man am I glad that I took the chance on the split Jazzes. They’re amazing! Everything I love about your singles, and dead quiet! I purchased the prewired control plate as well. It was very easy to install and I couldn’t be happier.

    What can I say…finally, after nearly a decade…silence. I have an American Deluxe Jazz Bass with N3 pickups and 18v active electronics. I have been fighting the dreaded 60 Hz hum ever since I bought it. Tried everything, check solder joints, look for broken grounds, look for ground loops, 100% copper shielded, etc. Nothing helped. Finally fed up with a $1,900 buzz box, I started the pick up search. With every search and every review, Fralin came to the top. The staff at Fralin Pickups assured me, this would fix the hum and breath new life into this Bass…I had no idea how right they would be. These standard wound Split Jazz pickups sound full, punchy, amazing attack, and clean mids…did I mention, silent? Even with the Active Electronics switched on…silence. Repeat customers are the best compliment someone could give a business…time to outfit the American Deluxe Jazz Bass V and the fretless.
