ES335 Pickups.


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys & Gals.

I have just purchased a Gibson ES 335 Figured 2019 model in cherry, it's a lovely guitar bit can someone tell me why the neck pickup is slanted like a wedge of cheese towards the neck ?.

Surely it should be parallel with the strings, to set the pickup heights on any guitar the method is to set the pup with the last fret depressed and measure it from  the bottom of the string to the top of the pole pieces.

It is not possible to set it from the top of the pole pieces on a humbucker pickup at an angle when the back of the pup is higher than the pole pieces.

I have reversed the pick up ring but did I di right or do Gibson do this on purpose or is it a design fault ? HELP.
