    My e string does not sync up between the two pick up metal dot things. I think this is a problem with the bridge. How do I move the string over some?

    It's not a problem with the bridge, but rather the pickup placemnt that was done at the factory. Fenders typically have this problem.

    hmm... is there any way to fix such a problem? I've noticed my Squier has a similar unalignment. Are we stuck with poorly aligned pickups (sans upgrade)?
  4. if you were to adjust your bridge you would move all the other strings up... i believe if you want to correct it you would have to have a pickup that is shorter than the bridge so that the two poles line up with each string (would make it sound a whole lot better [and the short thing is assuming its the neck pickup]{and asuming its a jazz}) that or you can switch the pups out and put some bartolini's in. they have wide pole magnets..
