    Hi guys,

    Just got a new Hofner bass, the E string isn't making a sound, seems to be because of it touching the pickup.. I've included some pictures. Can anybody tell me how to adjust the height of the pickups and by how much? Thanks :)

    What about those screws on the sides of the pickup rings?

    Yep! Just loosened them up a little and then gently pushed the pickup down! Not sure why it was so high to begin with though...

    Could just be a slip up at the factory in the final setup work. Ultimately you want to adjust them to YOUR liking anyway, so you should take the opportunity to try playing with them low, and then as high as possible, and see what you like.

    Cheers!
