    Not sure where this belongs,oh well.anyway..i have been playing a "new" jazz bass,bought it,it's an MIM Fender Jazz,but i've notcied that every thing i play on the E string sounds quieter than all the other strings/notes,i am almost 100% sure it's not the amp..i played my other jazz through it,and it sounded fine.I play through an Ampeg B-1 Head,and a 15in Univox(i'm oldschool with the univox) speaker..i was wondering if i raise the pickup under the E string if this would help,any suggestions would be great,sorry for such a long post.thanks.

    Raising the pup might help, is your E string dead maybe? I bought a Warwick once which had a totally dead E but the other 4 were fine so maybe new strings would solve your problem. Be careful how much you raise the pups as you don't want them to be unbalanced since by raising it for the E you'll automatically be making it higher for the A also. Good luck bro.

    i just bought a new set of d'adadrio's,i don't know if it is a dead string..i'll see what happens.it sounds super sweet other than the fact that i have a weak E.
