I was reading up on the Bill Lawrence webiste about the distance between pickup and string, and it said:

"As a general rule for the bridge pickup - put a nickel on top of the pickup under the high E string and play the highest note on that string. Adjust the height on that side of the pickup till the string touches the nickel. Repeat the same with the low E string, but use two nickels on top of each other. If this gives you too much output, you can reduce the height slightly. Don't forget that twice the distance will reduce the output by about 60%, and the sound will lose some lows. NOW, you can adjust the neck pickup to match the output of the bridge pickup. For the sound test, use stage volume."

anyways, i got the bridge pickup part of it, but it says for the neck pickup I can adjust it to match the output of the bridge pickup and at stage volumes. How do I do that? Thanks for your help!

turn your amp to the volume you usually play at, and adjust the neck p/u height to where it's about as loud as the bridge p/u.
