P90 distance from strings

P90 distance from strings

I usually start p90's at about 3/16th inch from the string and listen from there. The farther away the pickup is from the string the brighter it will sound and it'll have less distortion. Closer to the strings, a bit darker and more distortion.

What is P90 pickup good for?

P90 pickups are good for a range of different styles of music, because they have a versatile tone. They're well suited to blues, country and rock. The only style that they aren't usually as well suited to, is metal. This is because you can get some humming when you crank up the gain, as they only have one coil.

How do I know if my pickups are too high?

Setting your pickup height too high will cause your magnets to push and pull your strings out of tune. Here's a quick way to tell if this is happening to you: play the Low E string at a high fret (15th fret is a good one to start at). You might hear a “warbling” sound. That sound is your magnet fighting your string.

How far should humbucker pickups be from strings?

For standard, full-size humbuckers, a reasonable starting point for the bridge pickup is at least 1/16" (1.5mm) from the high E and 5/64" (2 mm) from the low E. There are no recommended distances for the other 4 strings.
