I think this is a pickup problem, so bear with me. I bought a DOD 250 pedal to mod. I then found that at low gains, the E string would distort if I wasn't very carefull about plucking, while the other strings where still clean. I assumed it was the DOD, but when I tried my Hag, the problem went away. I have the pickups set in the normal ^ shape. Is it normal for the E string to have more output than the others? I thought I had the string levels balanced, but maybe I tend to want more bottom end and subconciously boost it?
