Lowering picups ????????


Recommended Posts

Raising the pickups = more output.


Lowering the pups = less output.


Experiment does not harm.


Pickup height is a very personal thing (taste/preference) and a combination of many other factors like your amp settings, strings-gauge/height, the music you're playing, the individual Les Paul and the pickups themselves. Some pickups don't sound 'right' close to the strings, while others sound more balanced that way. It's about finding the right sweet spot for your pickups at the point where they sound most balanced in your set-up.
