i got the heavier strings, and tuned them

i have the string action gauge from stew mac
it goes in decimals like: 0.010, 0.020, 0.030, 0.040, etc...

I'd just say high enough. Not too high though, so you can still play with your fingers, but not too low, the that the slide doesn't scrape off your frets, if you get me. Just a bit higher than normal.

There isn't really a set height, that's what I was trying to get at if you get me. You just want something thats comfortable for you to be able to play with your fingers and a slide. It's different for everyone.

On the MIM Strat I've got it cranked up all the way lol. I mean really, it can't be too high for slide playing.... unless you're wanting to finger certain notes or you're using a hybrid style
