Greetings, I just purchased a new Les Paul Studio Deluxe from Guitar Center. I haven't been able to find the spec for pickup height adjustment anywhere here on the Gibson site. Can anyone tell me what the proper height of the pickups should be?

The pickup height is still set as it came from the factory (or maybe Guitar Center adjusted it). The bridge pickup is set at 1/8" from the bottom of the strings (when pressing the string at the last fret) and the neck pickup is set at 1/32". I've checked the internet and found different recommendations, but most seem to agree that a good starting place is 1/16" for the bridge pickup and 3/32" for the neck pickup. What does Gibson recommend?

Thanks for the reply, if only I'd read down a few posts, I wouldn't have to feel like such a dummy.
