    What kind of string gauge you're using? Usually, using a thinner string helps.

    Was having a similar issue with my 8 string. Went from 10-52,64,80 to 9-40,54,74 and it's much clearer.

    Honestly don't hear much rumble/bassiness, even during the palm mutes

    Are you sure it's just not some LOW frequencies from the amp/cab in the 0-100hz range? Remove them with a highpass if you aren't already

    A multiband compressor working 100-250 might help a little, but it's not that bad at all

    High pass filter, as mentioned, is the easiest solution to get rid of the rumbling. If you're generally unhappy with the sound of the guitar, you can start tinkering with the electronics or even swap the PUs.
