Why is my b string louder than the other 5 strings ? It's an early 80's american standard strat, everything is stock, except I replaced the orginal maple neck with a neck(rose wood, smaller frets) from a mexican strat I have, the orginal neck desperately needs a fret job. I've had the mex neck on for awhile, and didn't notice the problem before, maybe I just didn't notice it. The strings are stock D'addario 10s, fairly fresh, I have the bridge set to float, I use to have it locked down. The other day at rehersal, I started noticing it, maybe it was how my amp ('72 Fender Deluxe) was positioned? playing at a certain volume ? ? It seemed to happen reguardless of pickups selected, maybe not, it's hard to tell though, I was trying to be particular when I played to play each string with the same dynamics so as to get a better idea of what was going on. I have a few guitars, do slight mods to them now and then, play varying situations, practice space, small and large gigs, so its not always easy to pinpoint when, where, if things change. Any thoughts ?
