I'm still wondering if the p/ups are a tad too close when they push the clean channel. Maybe that's just the P90 nature, I don't have much of a reference? I'm hesitant to lower them further; they're really good where I have them now.


Let 'em drive it! Wink

I'm tending to agree with you. They're right in the middle of the Duncan recommended spex; 1/8" to 1/16" from the strings. Why mess with it if it works? They're probably just on the hot side.

Did you ever resolve the neck p/up issue with your P90s?

*THIS* is why I don't usually play with individual pole pieces, I'd NEVER get done.
So I went at the p/up height 1 more time, lowering the bridge about another 1/64". Now both are around 7/64 low E, and 6/64 hi e.
It softened the attack, but kept the overdriven sound still strong enough where I like. Both p/ups blend well also, with a good clean in-between tone. Before it wouldn't take much to push the clean channel. Now it'll crunch up some, but it takes a stronger pick attack. So, softened up, but not beyond it being usable or weak.

I keep my pickups as they come, which is usually lowest under the low E and the G string. (for unwound G).

that's how carvin pickups would come stock, and also how the pole pieces on most "modern" design single coils are.
