Just bought a Bass. E string is very dull, hardly any volume or sustain. Haven't taken it to local shop yet to have setup adjusted, but I notice a couple prominent kinks in the string between the bridge and fretboard. It looks almost as if the string was sharply bent at one point, then straightened out. I know a lot of things go into it, but has anyone seen a string kinked like that before? Think it would make a big difference?
