Distorted sound on the 3 and 4 fret on the dark E string on the "Spank"

Hi. Just bought a jtv-69 (korea made) today. But... a big problem... when I am playing a bit hard on the notes mention above i really get a terrably sound. Its like its distorted. (neck picup) This is not happening to the magnetic picups and not to all other models either. And even on the same model (spank) its gone when I am using bridge and mid positions... I also notice like a flanging sound on several of the models... I did reinstall the software 1.90 but it did not help :-( so I think I will return it someday soon...

Any ideas?

I solved that problem by lowering the volume of that string in the workbench. Not ideal when you use the lester sound after but you can find a good compromise between the two sounds. Work for me.
