    Most Fender SC pickups have a coil height between the flats of .435--.500 inch. (The exceptions to that are the short Jazz P-90 looking pickups.)
    Between the Flats Height + Top & Bottom flatwork thickness = magnet lenghth.
    If you want a top stagger, add that to the magnet length.
    Taller coils are usually brighter sounding than shorter coils.
    These variables allow for a custom sounding pickup.
