Gibson pickup question

Postby MOJOE » Thu Mar 08, 2007 3:03 pm

Please pardon my ignorance, as I have never owned anything but Strats til recently. Can Gibson PAF 57's be adjusted for height? Is their a recommended height formula for Gibson's or Epiphones with humbuggers? Went to Setup section on Gibson's website. They talk about neck and string height adjustments, but not about pickup adjustment. Thanks JOE

If you are talking about being able to raise or lower the pup closer to ,or further away from the strings, the HB's work the same as your strat pup's, 2 little screws to the left and right of said pup.

I read a long time ago, I think on the old Ampage Pickup Maker's Forum, that Gibson used a standard of 3/16" string height at the neck pickup and 1/8" at the bridge, with the string fretted at the last fret. Anyway, that's what I've used for a good while.
