    How do you adjust the height of the pups on a Fender Jazz bass?

    use a screwdriver, screw them down. Did you not try that?

    In general, the pickups should be closer to the G string than E string.

    thanks that cleared up alot. I play a bit harder so I guess I need a higher action to stray away from that distorted sound.
