    Hello all. I have a Fender MIM Jazz (quite the beaut; midnight wine!), but I've noticed that through my playing, the E string is noticeably louder than the other strings. Why do you think this is?
     
  2. pickup height? if not this, check your eq settings. you can easily change this by just turning down the bass a little on your eq.

    Pickup height. Tighten the screws on the side of the pickup that is facing AWAY from the volume and tone knobs.
