    Hey all, not sure if I should put this in setup or pickups.
    I recently got a used MIM fender jazz (fretless), and the poles on the pickups are sticking up really high on the A and D strings.
    You can sort of see it in this picture:

    My experience has been with P style pickups, so I'm not used to the jazz thing yet.

    1. Is this normal? it's far more extreme than the curvature of the strings, so it seems pretty odd to me.

    2. If it's not normal, how do I adjust that? smack em down with a hammer?

    3. Anyone have a jazz body they want to trade me? I'm not fond of this color. :bag:
