Most Gibson SG's come stock with the bridge humbucker set super high?

I've played/seen a lot of SG's over the last few years...almost all of them had the bridge pickup set significantly higher than the neck pickup. and I agree with you about the string height, but don't les pauls have the same tune-o-matic bridge?

I guess it's because they have tune-o-matic bridges, which are pretty tall, so they need to raise the pickup to be closer to the strings.

They do, and their bridge pickup is always higher than the neck pickup.
They also have thicker rings around the bridge pickup.
Maybe because of the carved top it doesn't look like such a big difference.

I suppose you could be right, good sir. I've never noticed the pickup height being different on a les paul.

I played an SG once at GC and I got buzz from the bridge pickup
HILT!

Where's Waldo?

bridge pickups need to be closer to the strings than the neck because it's less resonant there or something. Its appearance would be exaggerated by a TOM
