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.
All Jazz Bass, No Hum.

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%.

Hey Reynaldo, select -5% on both pickups.
Hey folks! I have a ‘62 fender jazz reissue with a 7.25” radius fretboard and concentric pots. Wanting to go with split cool jazz, but the two questions were: 1) there’s an option on the single coils for raised centre poles. I didn’t see this on the splits. Is this an option? 2) what winding? Standard? 5% over? Lastly, do you folks ship to Canada? Thanks, eh?

Hey Doug, our Split Jazz Coils come stock with Raised Center Poles. We always recommend Stock Winding unless you have a bright-sounding bass that you want to tame, which the +5% output will give you a thicker and louder tone.
Would it be possible to order a split coil J pickup with a separate lead for each coil? My use case would be to have several split coil pickups with all the treble coils wired through one selector switch and then all the bass coils routed through a second switch, with the switch positions allowing the possibility of using the treble coil from any pickup and the bass coil from the same or a different pickup.

Hey Bret, two things: the midrange increases and the top-end tapers. Essentially, the pickup gets "thicker"-sounding. - Tyler
I read that you plan on releasing a split jazz for five string. These questions are not dated, so I cannot tell how recent the question is. Is this still on the docket? My fretless 5-string is six months back ordered, so when it comes in, I'd like to install these pickups. I already own a noiseless PJ set and know these would be perfect for new bass. 6/2/22 (see what I did there :)) Thanks

Hey Bruce, yes - we are! We have all the parts ready for flatter fingerboard radiuses (12"+) and are working on another Blade radius to fit more 9.5" fingerboard radiuses. If your bass has a flatter fingerboard radius, we can sell you a set. Otherwise, I'd recommend waiting for the new blade radius to come in. - Tyler
