Collection of Guitar Pickup Heights

Just a basic collection of guitar pickup heights to provide you with a reasonable starting point, the pickups should always be adjusted to your personnal preference though and only you will know exactly what you like the sound of.

To measure hold strings down at the last fret (closest to the guitar body), using a capo can help, then measure from the bottom of the strings to the top of the pickup and adjust as necessary on both the Bass and Treble sides.
