  • JB in Les Paul users, your sweet spot height?

    Hi folks,

    Dropped a zebra JB into the bridge of my Les Paul standard a few days back. I found a compromise between power and clarity at 5/32" space between the bridge pole pieces and the strings.

    What's your preferred JB pickup heights? I know some set it really high, choosing instead to control the output through the volume knob.

    On the standard JB I like to raise the poles for the big strings and match the radius of the neck. The low E is about 1/8" raised, the A is slightly higher, and the D is slightly higher than the A. The D string pole is as high as it can go without the string hitting it.
