Hey all. I'm trying to put together a more or less comprehensive list of coil heights.
I thought I had something going but as I check what I had with some actual pickups (as I encounter them), nothing really correlates.
Anyone care to share their data? You know, for science?
Here's a stupid question. What are the "VN's" in the estimator? I always thought they were imports but I guess I'm not 100%.
What most of us do with SC pickups, is start with standard height.
for a Strat it is 11mm, or around .435" between the flats.
If you want the pickup brighter, make them a little taller (neck).
If you want fatter, rounder, make them a little shorter (bridge).
Experiment and see what you get.
I like a bright tele neck pickup so I go tall.
Close to 1/2".
You are limited on tele neck height by the cover.
If too tall the cover want attach properly.
The tele bridge can vary in height from around, .45", to .50".
