    OK, I just bought my first set of new strings, GHS Brite flats. I put them on my MIM Fender Jazz Fretless, and the top three strings sound great! Very punchy, very bright. But, my E string sounds like crap...it feels really floppy, and makes a weaker and duller sounds than the rest. I bought the long scale strings...did I buy the wrong ones? Why does my E sound like that? Help out a newbie! :)
