I've been less than satisfied with the sound of the fretted notes on the E strings on all my basses. Here are my 2 main problems Problem #1: Do the notes on the E string sound wooly or less clear/defined for anyone else? It doesn't sound like a pick-up issue but it may be. I've noticed it with all my basses and I'm wondering if anyone else notices that too. Problem #2: I tune my bass(es) w/ a a quality tuner and it says it is "in tune" but when I play and octave on E and D string they sound out of tune with each other if that makes sense but if I play a line using all four string it all sounds fine... It's only the E and D string that I notice that with and mainly it's the E string that doesn't sound in tune, The other three strings sound nice but any note of the E string sounds off... (The tuner says the fretted notes are in tune) What could that be? Or are my ears just messing with me? Looking forward to any input! Thanks!
