PICKUP HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
With guitar held in playing position, we recommend the following open string measurements:
Bridge: 4/32" top of rail to bottom of open low E.
3/32" top of pole to bottom of open high E.
Neck: 5/32" top of rail to bottom of open low E.
4/32" top of pole to bottom of open high E.
These are good starting points. Raising the pickup increases volume and distortion, but too high can reduce clarity and sustain. Lowering the pickup reduces volume and distortion, but too low can sound dull.
We recommend you fine tune the height adjustments while playing thru your amp. Adjust a little at a time, until you find your perfect balance of volume and tone between the low and high strings, and the bridge and neck pickups.
