P bass blues. Help needed!

    My MIM p bass has this thing going on with it....the e string sounds "bumpy" compared to the other strings. Basicly, that string has less sustain, then the others, and the sound is rreeeeally bugging me. The "bumpy" tone has got to go! I want that smooth sound like the other strings.
    The sound is most noticable when playing with a pick, but even with fingers, it just doesnt sound good.

    Any and all help is appreciated!

    Sounds like its time for some new strings.
