JTV59 Low E very bassy sounding

Recommended Posts

Just acquired a JTV-59. Strings are 10-46, however, the low E sounds very bassy on all models. Almost as thick as a bass guitar. Is there any adjustment I can make with piezos on that string to mitigate this/ Thanks.

Not sure what you mean by “…thick as a bass guitar”  

 

I sometimes press around the piezo with a thick guitar pick while plucking that string and monitoring familiar model.  If tone changes drastically between good/bad, it will likely require servicing.

If it sounds fine with the magnetic pickups then either the piezo pickup isn’t seated properly, is not soldered in properly, or is partially defective.
