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.

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

Sound

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%.

Split Jazz Questions And Answers:

    Hi, I have a p/j set up. I already have a Fender Custom shop 62 pickup in the neck position and really like the sound so I rather not replace it. I'm looking to replace the bridge pickup. Will your jazz bridge pickup work good with the Fender 62 or will it not match well like volume, sound etc?

    Hey Nick, our Split Jazz Bridge should match nicely with your neck pickup. The only thing you need to worry about is polarity, which shouldn't be a big deal here - if you install and you're out of phase, simply reverse White and Black and you'll be back in phase.

     

  2. I have a Jazz bass with a 7.25 radius neck. Pick ups with flat poles that I’ve tried cause the E and G strings to be louder. Fine tuning the pick up adjustments does not fix the problem. Do you sell these pick ups with raised A and D poles to accommodate the 7.25 neck radius? If so, how do I order them. Thanks, Doug

    Hey Doug, yes - our Split Jazz comes standard with raised A & D pole pieces!

     

  4. Do you have Foam or Mounting Plates?
  5. Q Do you have Foam or Mounting Plates?
    A 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.
  6. How do I orient the pickup in the bass when installing?
  7. Q How do I orient the pickup in the bass when installing?
    A The leads come out of the treble side.
  8. What Pots should I use?
  9. Q What Pots should I use?
    A 250K Pots are recommended for either Jazz Bass or P-Bass.
  10. What output do I choose?
  11. Q What output do I choose?
    A Good question. For the most balanced tone between highs and lows, go to the Stock Output, which is a replica of the earliest Jazz Basses. If you’re looking for a thicker and darker tone, opt for the +5% Output. If you’re looking for a cleaner and more articulate sound, opt for the -5% output.

    Super happy with the pickups. Old school sound. Super fast shipping. Would buy them again.

  2. hbreder
    Verified Buyer

    These pickups have great clarity and punch. I ordered the stock winding but these pickups do not sound like any stock pickups I’ve ever had. No more muddy sound and absolutely no hum.
    No modifications needed to install in a ’71 J bass. Worth the price.

  3. John Eaton
    Verified Buyer

    These are fantastic pickups, the clarity of articulation of the notes and tonal characteristics are amazing.
    My only wish is they offered cream knobs to match their cream colored pickup covers, as they really do not match anything availble. Had to dye a set via multiple tries on my own

  4. Vaughan Misener
    Verified Buyer

    These are simply the finest pickups, with the most character I’ve ever used.
    I only have the one, so it’s gotta be right…and it is.
