    I recently had my 2012 jazz bass set up for the first time
    The tech did a nice job.
    He lowered the neck pick up to about 1/2 the height of the bridge pick up.
    he said the "blended" sound would be "sweeter"
    I have only had a chance to play it through a very small practice amp. The only difference i can hear with that amp is the volume is much lower.
    Does anybody have any thoughts on this?

    I will be hearing it out of my main amp at a gig fiday nite. I was just curious
  2. It's a matter of personal taste really...but I also like the bridge pickup to be higher than the neck pup because it typically does balance out the volume between the 2 pups. It should also add to the articulation of each note to a degree as well. Are if you solo each pickup are the approximately the same volume?

    I believe the 2 pups played individually are approximately the same volume
