    Hope someone can help with this...I have a 5 string Sadowsky Jazz bass fitted with Sadowsky pickups.When played through my rig,the open E,A,D & G strings are of equal volume...however,when the open B string is played the volume seems to fade in & out/fluctuate up & down.I have tried lowering and raising the pickups but can't seem to get rid of this problem.Any ideas?

    Bad string maybe?

    +1. I've had that same problem in the past, and changing strings alleviated the problem.

    I'd go so far as to say if the pickups don't seem to negatively impact the other 4 strings, I'd rule out the pickups.
