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!

Overview

Our Split Jazz Bass Pickups are Noiseless Jazz Bass Pickups. They feature USA-Made magnets and wire and are wound by hand, one at a time. Featuring a Left-Right Coil design for no-hum, we guarantee that you will absolutely love the sound of our Split Jazz Bass Pickups. We wind these pickups to 60’s specifications, using top-of-the-line materials to give you a clear, open tone: all across the board.

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%.

FAQs

  • What output do I choose? 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.
  • What does “Raised Centers” mean? This all refers to your fingerboard radius. If you have a Vintage radius (7.25″ – 9″), you might want to go with Raised Centers. If you have a flatter radius, keep it stock.
  • What Pots should I use? 250K.
  • How do I orient the pickup? The leads come out of the treble side.
  • 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.
  • Wiring Diagrams? Here!

1 Questions about Split Jazz

  1. Good day! Sounds like a great product! Q1) Why 250K pots? Last year I installed new 500K pots in my 95 MIM FJ Bass…. Q2) My mim fender jazz has a bridge pu that is larger than the neck (3 5/8-neck; 3 3/4-bridge, approx). Is that the norm? Since you asked if they were the same size, I’m guessing that is ab-normal. Q3) Raised radius for a 95 Jazz? I’m leaning towards your 5% over wound on both B & N PUPs

    1. Hey George,

      Q1: 250K Pots are the norm for Jazz & P-Bass pickups. That said, you can certainly use 500K if you want an extended top-end. Q2: If your bridge is larger than the neck, that is certainly the norm – only recently have we seen equal-sized pickups. For Q3, the raised center magnets will work perfectly for your instrument.

    The Holy Grail of Thump

    I ordered the Split Jazz +5% and paired them with a John East Retro Deluxe Preamp wired for 18V. I installed in my 2020 Fender American Ultra Jazz (Texas Tea) and absolutely could not be happier. I have 15 basses and this has caused me to lose complete interest in 14 of them. I am currently playing through a Mesa TT800 into an eminence 1×15 cabinet and it sounds amazing. Cannot thank Lindy and team enough for showing me what was possible and presenting me with the punch, depth and clear articulation that I have been searching for the past 36 years. I will be continuing to add Lindy pickups to my other instruments. If you are on the fence, do not hesitate, these are the real deal…..
