Pickup height on a Jazz Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by fourstringbliss, May 5, 2004.

  1. I just traded with a guy for a beautiful Jazz Bass (I'll put up pics when I become a contributing member). How should I adjust the pickup height for the best sound? How much space between the top of the pups and the strings?

  2. not meaning to bomb your thread but I also have a similar question , I cant adjust well my pickup heigth , sometimes the E string sounds too boomy and the others to mellow .how can I adjust them too get the same tone on every string ?
  3. When I adjust my guitar pickup height I know I am supposed to press down on the top fret and adjust the screws until the pickup is 2-3 mm below the string. I just need to know how to do it with a Jazz Bass.
