Dead Spot (but only on 1 pickup)

    Just wondering if anyone else had run into this:

    Neck-thru 5 string, (2) EMG-HZ passive pickups.

    On the back pickup, all notes sound even and clean.

    On the front pickup, the 2nd - 6th fret on the E string sound very dull. Other strings sound fine on these frets.

    These are a new set of GHS Brite Flats, so I suppose a bad string is a possibility.


    Weird!

    Raised the front pickup- problem mostly solved.
