    alright...i have a ernie ball sterling and a mim jazz bass. when i use them for slap i find that the sterling has more of a twang and the e string thumps nicely while the g string sounds a little low. when i pick up the jazz bass i notice that my e string is low and the g string rings out perfectly. is it my pickups, strings, action or my overall setup?

    try adjusting your pickup height


    that's always fixed stuff like that for me.
