Some cool pictures
Many guitars have their pickups raised WAY too high…affecting both playability and sound. Gibson factory settings for humbucker height is 3/32″ for the bass side and 1/16″ for the treble. I don’t know what it is for P-90s, but these pickups have BIG coils (and TWO magnets). Much higher than 1/4″ and the magnetic fields were beginning to affect the sound in an undesirable way.
Circa ’70-71, when Gibson was also putting those logo-embossed chrome and gold covers on their humbuckers (and mini-humbuckers)
