    So after I first got my Essex I noticed that the E side of the pickup was lowered a lot more than the rest. I thought this was just a mistake by the factory so I leveled it out, but after going into GC the other day I noticed that pretty much every P in there was setup the same way. Is there some particular reason for this? such as maybe the E string being louder than the rest or something? The P pickup in my other bass has them all set level and I haven't noticed anything weird, nor with my Essex after changing it. I'm just curious as to why they were all like that
