  • Adjustable pole pieces

    So how do I know how to adjust these? What will it change in the sound. I have a JB by the way.

    That they fit the fretboard radiusis a good way to go and gives you a nice string to string balance. Remember there is a pickup height where the JB sounds the best. Just trust your ears. The values (on the faq of the page!) are a good point to start.

      Thanks. So basically its like fine tuning the pickup high for each string, correct? Are there any other kinds of general advice for this such as spacing between treble strings and bass or something?

          ahh these just screws going all the way through the pickup. Doesnt seem like their actually doing anything.

            I noticed my sound got alot fuller when I adjusted the poles. Especially the mids.
