I have recently bought a used Squier Affinity 5 String Jazz Bass and noticed that both the B and E strings touch the pickups while playing causing an annoying "clicking" noise. I also noticed that the E string sounds very dull and muddy when both amplified and acoustic. The E string also has a habit of hitting the fret board that causes it to give off a clicking noise. I got the bass set up and these problems still occur. Lowering the pickups don't seem work either. This is my first 5 string bass and was wondering if there is a way to fix it or if it's normal? My other (Ibanez) bass does not have this problem. Thanks.
