Rickenbacker 4003 Clipping Problem. Advice?
So I've had my Ric for a couple of months now, and it is everything I've ever dreamed. That powerful, aggressive sound, perfectly smooth neck, solid, beautiful build - fantastic. Best instrument I've ever played.
However, I've had a chronic problem with it since the beginning. When I hit the E string with any force, it clips. No matter what amp or DI box I'm using, it clips.
If I solo the neck pickup, no issue. But mixed or bridge solo'd, the clipping occurs. It's really not pleasant. Anyone else have this problem, and any specific recommendations to fix it effectively? Maybe lowering the E string specific bridge pickup pole (with an allen wrench or something)?
