Lindy Fralin Original Design

(92 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.

Tonal Graph for Split Jazz:

The tone graph below for our Split Jazz features Lows, Midrange, Highs, and general Output.



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%.

    The split jazz coils 10% overwound are exceptional and the best sounding jazz pickups I’ve ever played. My Fender American Original is a completely new vintage like instrument. They sound great with rounds and flats alike, and record exceptionally well with tapewounds. This upgrade from stock pickups is transformative, I can’t recommend them enough.

  2. Harley

    Bought the set for a amdlx active jazz bass. Bought the guitar with issues (including a broken neck p/u and bland bridge p/u). Sat on installing these because I lost interest in the guitar. Spent the day rewiring, changed pickups, and set up. Really happy I did this. It sounds incredible, the bridge is slightly overwound, has this great punchy sound, and is my favorite of the set. These pickups changed my impression on my jazz bass.

  3. Matthew Ford

    Your pickups are just plain nuts. I’ve never in all my years….. Ever…. Heard better pickups on any bass guitar. I’ll side-by-side mirror image jazz basses, but with YOUR pickups, and it’s beyond night and day. I googled ” what’s the best bass pickups money can buy” before I bought them. Your name came up. I bought them. And the rest is history. Thank you. I’m dead ass serious. These have got to be the most musically responsive pickups I’ve ever worked with. Humbled.

    I put a set of these on a Squier jazz bass. Turned it into a great sounding bass!

    I had the split coil jazz pickup set on my Fender American Professional for no more than one hour…
    They produce a really nice and even tone … But as soon as you touch the magnets… they will produce a Buzz …
    So if you dont have my bad habit of touching the magnets while playing, you will be ok …
    Im returning them … And i hope this gets improved soon… i dont think is too hard to achieve that..
    Beacuse at $300, I will spect no buzz when the magnets get touched…
    Bartolini B-Axis for example has exposed poles and they dont buzz at all…

    Warm jazz bass tone without the hum. Great pickups that retain a classic jazz bass tone despite the split coils. Perfect on my new double neck fretless four string bass.

    Perfection. These pickups allow the wood of the instrument to sing fully. Very very impressive tone. Great customer service too.

    I had no idea my Mexican ash Jazz had this many cool tones in it! ! I work in a melodrama theatre and need to play EVERY style of music in a show, as well as play flashy solos sometimes, and now my bass can do it all, and the dimmer noise is gone. It feels like a brand new instrument and I’m just beginning to discover the tonal possibilities. Great job, Lindy! I got the +5 overwind and the bass went from having an overly-scooped, empty sound to having significant midrange growl.

  9. Doug Milam
    Verified Buyer

    Wow, what an improvement over the stock pickups in my Fender Jazz (2016 MIM). I ordered these with the 5% overwound option in both neck and bridge, and asked Fralin if this was a good choice for my style of old-school soul and reggae. Pleased to say I got a response that confirmed my understanding of this choice. Great service there. The output is fantastic, hotter than stock but not overdriven. And, of course, no hum. Quality product!

    Im in love.. Bridge and neck split jazz overwound 5% and combined with a prewired vintage jazz control plate on a ’09 American Standard J. Tuned ADGC.. Im in awe of the character and subtlety these are capable of… precisely what Ive been looking for!
