2012 Fender American Standard P Pickups.
I just got a new Fender Am. Standard Precision last month. I love the bass but the pickups do not seem to have alot of output to me(especially compared to my other basses and I don't remember my '08 Am. standard doing it). I have to turn my amp up louder when using this bass. I know that it comes with the Custom Shop 62's and that is the reason that I wanted this bass for a more vintage sound. Is this just par for the course with these pickups or might there be a problem? I took a small screwdriver and touched each pole piece and they all had sound coming through.

What does the pickup height look like? If it looks high try lowering them.

They look ok to me. Set about the same way my '08 Standard ws.

if the bass is a little quiet try raising them up a bit, taking care to adjust them so that all 4 strings have equal volume.
either way, it's more about tone than volume, your amp has a volume knob for a reason.
