    Initial setup...depress E string at last fret & measure from bottom of that string to the top of the outside magnets of both the neck and bridge pickups. Aim for 4/32 inches. Do the same on the other side with the G string but aim for 3/32 inch height. Have to use your ear for final balance.
    Cheers.

    arambass,

    RE higher bridge pickup.

    That's the way it should be for a J Bass. The specs I gave you are Fender setup specs.

    Cheers.
