    Can anyone tell me exactly how to raise the pickups on a rickenbacker 4003? The E string volume is a lot lower than the others and i hope that raising the pickup with change this. Also is there a diagram somewhere with what to do to raise the pickups?

    Just turn the screws clockwise that are right next to the neck pickup and for the bridge pickup they are the two large phillips screws on the chrome p/u ring.

    If the neck p/u doesn't raise high enough you'll have to remove the pickguard, unscrew the p/u and remove the rubber spacers between the p/u and pickguard.
