Lindy Fralin Original Design

( 99 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.

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

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.

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%.

    Nice and thick

    I put this on my Fender Squier Jazz bass. Made a world of difference. The sophistication of sound is evident… it just sounds so much better.

    Superb pickups. Called the shop and told them what I was looking for in tone & output, they recommended the double stack jazz pickups 5% overwound. Completely changed my bass, as well as gave me more tonal ranges. I had them installed at my local luthier with 500K pots and a push/pull parallel/series option. I could not be happier, and wish I would have found you sooner.

    Amazing Pickups
    The Fralin pickups have made my Squier CV 60’s jazz sound awesome! Super quiet with no hum at all. Best upgrade I could have made. Nice them a try!

    Sire V7 Vintage upgrade
    An amazing improvement over OEM at a fair price. Perfect for traditional jazz—big, warm, three dimensional upright sound and noticeable improvement in timbre. These pickups allow the preamp’s full potential to shine. Also, zero hum. I’ll be back!

  6. thaRev

    I’m looking at grabbing a set of these and want p bass thump with articulation so I was thinking 10% over on the neck and 5% under on bridge. My thoughts are it would give a great separate and blended range. Please any suggestions. I play anywhere from country to classic rock to a bit of blues and jazz. Maybe a but of maiden and sabbath too. Cheers

    • Tyler @ Fralin Pickups

      We recommend going a bit stronger on the Bridge in comparison to the Neck. 10% is a lot for the P-Bass, so we’d probably recommend +5% on the Neck and +10% for the Bridge. This option is not selectable on our website, so use the ‘Notes’ field on the checkout screen to request.

  7. Appalachisst

    Incredible, it’s what I hear in my head when I imagine the ideal jazz bass sound. Quick question, I want the 70’s funk tone so I was thinking about getting the pups -5%, but I want extra attack and depth in the bridge pickup. What -5% combo should I get? Thanks y’all

  8. Silven Cox

    Wonderful pickups. Takes away 90% of that typical Jazz Bass hum, while still being punchy and clear. Will definitely keep buying from Lindy Fralin in the future!

    Jazz Bass pickup Home Run!
    These are the first non-factory pickups I’ve ever purchased and I can’t believe what I’ve been missing! It seems as though my tone control really makes a difference and the 2 volume controls really allow a greater amount of shaping. I got my neck PU 5% over and the low end is awesome. And from a lifelong Fender player, this is the first time the inherent “hum” is 99% gone which allows me to blend between the pickups like never before.

    New life
    Woah, this pickup sets just gave a new life to my jazz bass! I wish I had upgraded that earlier.

  12. Calne WA

    This is “Sickness.” A Warmoth build with the magnificent Split J set.
    I spaced out for maybe ten minutes while playing just two notes over and over. Snapping out of my funk, I realized I had been trying to tell the difference between swiping the string with 5 whorls of my fingertip or 7 whorls.
    That being the case, one could easily peg these pick ups as too critical; but, the exact opposite is true: Friendliest pick ups ever!!
    Clear, open and user-friendly. Now I know what an electrified bass guitar truly sounds like.

  13. Maarten Vandenbroucke

    Hi, I have the following question. I have a Zon jazz bass and the graphite neck gives it a bit a too brittle or high sound. Even though I now have the Bartolini dual coil jazz PUs installed with the darker version for the bridge PU. Should I replace with neck +5% and bridge +10% or twice +5% do achieve a more punchy growly tone?

    Thank you! See picture attached for your information.

    Installed Fralin Split Jazz pickups (with +5 overwinding) in my 2017 Jazz Bass. They sound great. I felt the stock pickups were a bit too bright and mid-range in sound. The Fralin pickups provide a much warmer, deeper, and richer sound than the stock pickups, which is what I looking for. I play in a trio band and I wanted a sound that provided more fullness and bottom end and the Fralin pickups gave me just what I needed.

    Fab Fralins!
    Completely woke up the Lakland DJ. No hum just tone. Lindy is great to work with and makes sure your happy with your pickups. Perfect tone throughout. From low to high! I now own 3 rigs with Fralins. Once you get some you come back! Thanks!


    Hey Tyler: Thanks for your response. What do you mean by “a slightly more scooped parallel position (middle)’ and which pickup are you referring to ? Thanks Ralph

    • Tyler Delsack – Fralin Pickups
      (store manager)

      When you put two pickups into parallel, you get a slightly funkier scooped midrange, which pleases most people. To get a little more of that scooped tone, overwinding one pickup will make it a little more “scooped” sounding.


  17. Ralph

    Want to get the split jazz pickups. But I’m having a tough time deciding whether to go with some combination of overwind. Has anyone installed the stock pickup on the neck and a +5 overwind on the bridge pickup? If so what are the results? Thanks

    • Tyler Delsack – Fralin Pickups
      (store manager)

      Hey Ralph,

      For what it’s worth, that’s a really popular combination here. You’ll have a slightly beefier bridge, and a slightly more “scooped” parallel position (middle). If that’s what you’re looking for, I say go for it!

    I bought a Lakland DJ and after one week I put in the splits(5 over neck-stock bridge) and now it sounds like it should! Phone calls answered all my questions and I got all the help I needed.
    Punch in the sound, nice lows and still very clear and articulate. I couldn’t be happier and when you have the best you know it. Great people to work with!!
    I now have 3 Fralin equipped rigs!

    I have a 09 Road Worn Jazz that I have to admit I bought on looks only to round out my collection of 4 other MIA Fenders. It had very weak output PU’s. Well not no more!!! I used the stock output with D’Addiaro Med Light Chromes flats, changed the cap to .10. This Bass now has a powerful full sound that is my favorite to play now!

  20. Chris Goodwin

    Would the -5% wind make these closer to a single coil j-pickup or are these always going to be significantly darker?
