Humbuckers and Phat Cats
« on: July 20, 2012, 03:16:42 PM »
I have been trying to find out how far to set the body of the pickup away from the strings.  I was looking for a measurement based on the two pickups above.  Point is the magnetic field produced by the pickup can cause the string not to resonate if set too close.  the pickup can be moved closer by raising or lowering the individual pins.  Can't seem to find anything.

There should be a screw on either side of the pickup, in the pickup rings, to set the height of the pickup. There's really no set height. Just experiment until you find a good sound, and have the 2 pickups putput balanced.. Raising or lowering the polepieces is to balance the strings.
