Ihave a Squire Strat and i have been experimenting a bit, when i took the scratch plate off to shield the pickup cavities i accidently turned the wrong screw and the pickup height changed, and this got me wondering is their any diffrence when you change the pickup height, and is them lower or higher better?

i BELIEVE the higher they are the better your tone is.

not too high though.

you dont want it touching your strings.

I've read that the higher they are the louder is the output signal (and volume level) but they have less tonality. And if they are too high you can hear some sounds out of phase, like feedback, because the magnets are too close to the strings.
for me the higher they are the sharper your tone is. if you lower your pickups they sound warmer and cleaner.
