I am trying to set a decent pickup height for my Epiphone SG. I am still unsure how to get it properly. I have my neck pickup pretty much flat and the bridge a little high. Plus I get really bassy sound.

I don't think that there is any "perfect" spot for the pickups. It comes down to more how it pleases your ears. I have heard of some even liking to have the bass side lower than the treble side or vice versa. Just keep adjusting up or down until you get the tone you are after. You might want to dial in your amp first then go to the guitar. Does the "bassy" sound happen with other guitars?
