On this new Italia bass I just got, there is a magnetic neck pickup and a piezo pickup in the floating wooden bridge.
There is an issue with the piezo. The E string sounds significantly lower in volume than the other three strings.
My assumption is that the piezo isn’t shoved far enough across the bridge (enters at G side) to properly pickup the E string.
It appears that the wooden bridge is constructed of two pieces to allow and that horizontal white line is the separation point. Only way I can see to get In there to correct. I tried simply pushing lightly in the piezo to see if it would go further in but didn’t want to ruin it so stopped when it didn’t budge easily.
I don’t think I’d repair this since it’s new, awaiting the shop in CA to call back and sort.
Any other ideas on what’s going on or do you think I’ve got is figured right?
