Hey guys

I have a Strat with texas specials. When I solo, everytime i go to the high E string, my volume comes noticeably down. I think it is the pickup height ut i cant find a good height for it...Any suggestions? I read the stuff at fender but still, i hear a lil differrence. is taht normal?
Thanks

for the high e string, fret it at the last fret, then adjust the pickup so there is a 1/16" space between it and the string.

i think that is the ideal height.

This happens with my Tele a lot, with my it's that the saddle for that string has come loose and is falling down. Have you tried looking at that?

I have kind of the same problem, but with the B string aswell. The pole pieces are staggered so that these two strings are considerably lower, dunno if that has anything to do with it. But it can get annoying when you're soloing and they don't have the same sustain and fluidity as the other strings. When I switch to the humbucker the sustain is back.
