Low string volume

Hi!
Anyone having this problem?
I've got a JEM7BSB and the high E string has a lower volume than the other
What do you think?

yep, i had this problem on my RG550 with a non-F-spaced FRED pup. I just raised the pup screw for that string to balance it out.

Get your pickup as close as possible to the strings without the fretted string hitting them. This is your pickup height.

Then adjust the polepieces one by one to adjust string-to-string volume.
Turn the high E polepiece counterclockwise, and the ones who sound louder than the others clockwise.

The top of the pole piece should never be below the surface of the pickup, nor should it be more than one-eight of an inch above the surface. Be careful not to turn it too far because it could fall out.

Cheers,
Joten

Yes, after following Ghes's suggestion and if it still does not work, then you may have to lower the volume of all other strings to match with the E string of concern.
