    Default Quick question ..

    Hi

    Can you guys tell me what shuld be the pickup height from the strings ?

    in my guitar i have 2 Humbuckers and the neck one is much lower then the bridge one , so i think this is why i'm getting much weaker sound from my neck pickup.

    tnx.

    There isn't really a rule on pup height. The aim being that it sounds good to you. If you feel the neck pup is too weak compared to the bridge than plug you guitar in, take a screwdriver, and give a turn to the screws of you neck pup, compare output, until you get a similar output fromboth pups or you are happy enough wit the difference.

    Then again you can just change the height of both your pups and try to see where you like them best.

    Capo the guitar at the 12th fret. Start with 3/32 bass and 2/32 treble. Fine tune from there. If your bridge is radiused you can also radius the pole pieces to increase definition.
