Alright, so im looking all over and everybody is saying that the pickups on a Squier Strat should be adjusted a bit. Well, first of all i know how to adjust them, so dont bother telling me how. What i want to know is, a general idea of how high, or low i should have each pick-up, like generally should the neck pickup be higher or lower? the bridge?

General stuff like that.

The neck pickup will always be lower, simply because its closer to the neck.

PUP Height adjustment has no set parameters, its a matter of listening and finding the height that sounds best for you and your style of playing (tone).

There's no "proper" height to have your pickups, just tinker until you're happy with the sound and tone you get. For the record, all of mine are as high as they'll go.

Ok, It's all taste, but:

1. The Bridge pickup is generally lower output than the Neck pickup, because the strings vibrate more at the neck pickup and it needs more power to "pick up" the sound. So usually, your neck pickup is lower than your bridge.

2. Polepieces can be adjusted individually to correspond to each string, which is better than tilting the pickup. For example, if your upper strings sound weak comprared to your lower ones you would probably consider raising one side and not the other. Don't, adjust the pole pieces, it'll sound better.

3. The more output you get on a pickup, the more it sound gets put into an amp. If your amp is a valve amp then raising the pickups on your guitar could give you less clean headroom.

Ideally you want the pickup to be high enough that it picks up your sound with clarity and strength, but not so high that the output becomes a distorted, muddy mess. Run your guitar into the clean channel of your amp and then raise the pickups slightly. Play, and try to hear if that's the sound you want. Is it strong enough? Is it too muddy? If it's not strong enough and your sustain seems to be suffering, you will probably need to raise your pickup. If it sounds fuzzy or clipped then you probably need to lower your pickup. It also helps to do this with a new set of strings; the dynamics and harmonics will be more clear, and your sustain will be good so any loss of it will most likely be the pickups' fault.

Hope that helps
