Oblique pickup heigt?


I just wanted to ask you guys, have you ever experimented with pickup heights?
I mean like, setting one side of your pickup high, and the other side of that same pickup low

Did it do any good/bad to the sound?

I'm busy trying some things here, I'm getting some fancy things, although I'm doing it through a computer at the moment. Can't wait to try something with an amp.

Just wondering. Any comments?

(it's kinda new to me)

The correct pickup height is determined by the sound that comes out, not how they look - so having mismatched heights isn't just likely, it's pretty much a given if you're even remotely picky about your sound.
