This happens typically when the string heights are a bit high. The fingered volume greatly exceed the slap volume acoustically, so be it electronically. It could also be the strings. As my inital "gut" to the thread title was " any J with nickle rounds set low, real low!"
There may be more to it than that, as I am no more than a closet amature.
Hope y'all have been well!
