: Hey there,
: I have a 2001 MIM Fretless Fender Jazz Bass Standard. I got it 2nd hand. The e-string doesn't play with the same volume as the others...it's not as loud. I've changed the strings, adjusted the action and pickup heights with no results. Any suggestions?
The one best improvement you can make to that bass is to replace the pick-ups. For about 250., Steve Bailey has a system out there just for fretless basses. Bass lines are good, they are about 150. for the set. I don't know why the output of your pickups is the way it is, but if you have done what you have done to no avail, then replace them........peace....John
