How does pickup height affect sound, gain, etc? And can you use it to vary how much gain you have on per pickup?
'89 MIJ Fender Strat
Rivera S-120
'60s PEPCO Model 211 5w head
'60s Paul (Pepco) 1x12 tube amp
'60s Harmony H303a 1x10 tube amp

it adds volume, i believe. i did it to my epi les paul and it helped me with tapping louder.
My Gear:
Fender 60th Anniversary Standard Strat
Vox AD30VT
Big Muff Pi.

More volume, and a bit more gain. I actually increased my total gain by about a fourth by raising the bridge pup accordingly.

Does the postion make it less/more bassy?
My Rig:
Epiphone Les Paul Custom - Alpine White
Vox AD30VT
Epiphone SG Special - Black
Planet Waves Cables
Levy's Strap
Dunlop .70 Picks

Depends on the pickup....

Most of the time moving the pickup too close will make it muddy.

u can raise the bass side, get more bass.

u can lower one side, lower that volume.

close enough for extra bite, too close and it gets a little muddy.

I actually like the neck pickup almost recessed into the body, it still gives me a really bassy tone, while not being in the way of pinch harmonics. So I don't think the height has much to do with tone, more with volume.

it does shap the tone of the pup if u tilt the pup to one side, or adjust pole pieces when that's an option.
