SG Bass E string dull

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody:   I have a new  Gibson SG Basss EBO3 with aq neck pickup and a bridge pickup,. I am having a problem with E string being about 20% lower volume than the ADG strings.

I have been back to the dealer with not much success and I have tried new strings I have tried backing out the E string screw in the neck pickup and the problem persists..Please can anyone give me some advice, I cannot return the bass and I don't want to hide it in a closed,

thanks for any and all help

This is a very common problem.  Try turning the guitar volume down to around 50-60%  and increasing your amp volume to achieve the volume you wish to play at; your guitar output may be slightly over-driving the amp, accentuating the three higher strings output preferentially to E.  You may have to experiment to find the guitar volume knob sweet spot.

Good luck.
