Members PanaDP Posted March 4, 2010 Members Share Posted March 4, 2010 I adjusted the pickups on my new-to-me Orville by Gibson les paul today. I was surprised at how low they ended up compared to every factory setup guitar I've played. Here's how mine ended up, measured with the strings fretted at the last fret: Neck-1/8" on treble side, perhaps a hair more on the bass side Bridge-9/64" treble side, 5/32" bass side Gibson's factory setting are 3/32" for the neck pickup and 1/16" for the bridge. I assume their numbers were arrived at by some kind of system. Given that, I wonder why they're so far from what I found sounds best. One would think the "experts" would be pretty close, but not in my case. Anyway, out of curiosity, how far are your humbuckers from your strings fretted at the last fret?
