I have a Epiphone SG Special... and I was wondering what would happen if I raise my pickups? or if I lower them? I know that the best way to know it is to try both but just want to know it before 'cause I don't want to do it for nothing.
Higher: More gain
Lower: More Tone

That's in most scenarios...typically

Raise 'em = More volume, some say a brighter tone

Lower 'em = Less volume, some say a warm/mellow tone

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
I raised the pickups on my guitar earlier today, because my high E string was a lot quieter than the others. It succeeded in making it a lot louder.

Also, I think raising increased gain since you increase also increase volume. If you're using a tube amps, you can start to naturally overdrive the tubes when you play loud.
