    TBers -

    I have a Fender 2016 AVRI Jazz bass that is awesome. I have, however, noticed that the A & D string output seems less than the E & G. The pickups are set to Fender spec height and the string heights are 3/32" (E) to 2/32" (G). When I measure from the top of the pickups to the strings, the distance is higher for the A & D, which makes sense for a 7.25" neck.

    Would replacement vintage spec pickups with raised A & D pole pieces (i.e. Fralin, Lollar, etc) help or create another problem?

    I have a '62 avri jazz bass that sounds fine so I won't be changing any pick ups. Can you eq it with your amp?

    I have changed the Original Vintage pickups on my AVRI '62 Jazz (2005) for a set of Custom Shop '60s Jazz PUs and it's a great upgrade. However, I have never experienced a weaker signal with the A and D strings on any of both sets (using light gauge Chromes).
