installed seymour duncan 59n and jb-4 on my epiphone les paul stnadard by myself for the first time

woo hoo

had a question

how high should the strings be above the pickups?
and i heard its 1/8 or 1/16 but is that from the middle? cuz one side is higher than the other
Your bridge should usually be higher than the neck. I think the height is exactly from each pickup. 1/16 of an inch sounds way too high, its more than likely 1/8 for the bridge.
