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!

Notice

Due to the nature of Raw Nickel, Raw Nickel may contain slight cosemetic defects or abrasions.

Recommendation

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

Lead Time

A Lead Time of 3 Weeks 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.


All Jazz Bass, No Hum.

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%.

  4. I have 2 - 2015 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Basses with 18v active electronics, N3 pickups, and active/passive switch. One is a 4 string, the other a 5 string. The N3's are noisy when passive, and NOISY when active. Doesn't matter which pickup is selected or if both are selected. I like the basses but am at my wits end with the 60Hz buzz.

    Hey Reynaldo,  select -5% on both pickups.

  8. 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.
