I have a Samick Electric Guitar that's relatively an inexpensive copy of Strat. It plays all right and suits me as a beginner.
However I specifically notice that the High E (1st string) sounds weak as compared to other 5. So there's is unintended variation in the volume when I switch to 1st string.
So far I have tried lowering the action on 1st string and also raising that side of pickup height. However there's no much difference. One more thing I wish to give it a try is to replace only the first string with relatively medium gauge string (Current ones are all thin) and check.
Is this a problem with the instrument or expected variation and is there any possible solution?
