Ultra Jazz fiver users

  1. hi, I have dimarzio Ultra jazz five pups in my warmoth bass which is strung up with DR SS lowriders with a 125 B.

    For anyone who has/is using ultra jazzes, how far away is your neck pup from the B? I noticed that my B string wasn't sounding quite like I wanted it to, with what sounded like magentic pull from the pickup on it. Pretty much the only way I can get the B to sound as good past the 7th fret as it does from 1-6 is by having my neck pickup almost level in the route.

    I can't give exact measurements (Im in college and no one on my floor has a decent ruler with the necessary increments- 16ths and 32nd) but I just wanted to know if any other Ultra Jazz users have noticed a strong pull on the B string of their basses.
