Bass Losing Output

    So I have noticed the last month or so that my 08' AM Std Jazz has about 15 to 20% less volume, or output than my P.

    What is going on...wiring, pick-ups, pots???

    Don't believe this should be happening to a Bass that is only 6yrs old.

    So I raised the pick-ups so the are about 1/8" from the strings..we will see what happens.

    Do they both have the same strings? I think if you raised it up to 1/8th" it was too low to begin with.
