How close are your pickups to the string?

I am fairly new to bass (I've played guitar for more years than I care to admit though). I wonder how close do you keep the pickups to your strings. On the guitar I try to get them as close as possible without losing sustain due to the magnetic pull (which is no longer an issue once I've swapped pu's to Bill Lawrence on half of my guitars). However I feel it may be different with the bass, since the sound I prefer is clean and punchy (as opposed to overdriven on the guitar).
