I have a Reissue 62 Fender jazz bass that has a much more pronounced "string slap" than any other bass I own (I have many). The action does not seem accessibly low and the neck seems to be adjusted right. Is this a string issue, a bridge that is set to low or yet something else. Please post any input that you might have.

Also has anybody wired in EMG active pickups in a 62 style knob configuration? The 62 has the independent volume/tone controls on each pickup.
