    Drop me in the "by ear" bucket. After a fresh install, they go up to about 3/16" then start lowering until they go dull, then back up again until I'm happy. Then, they typically stay put. I rarely go back and adjust them, unless I'm finding the tone to be a little too-much or too-little.

    We've lived opposite lives. I started out diving head first into whatever (including concrete once...) and figuring it out... then after breaking all sorts of things (items and bones) and taking more than my share of trips to the ER, I learned caution. and now I weigh my risk/reward before I dive in. That being said, if I had an adjustable cheapo pup, I'd experiment all day, but I don't want to screw up one of my custom made Elysians or my Imperiums...

    My bridge pickup is so high up it pushes the strings out of the saddles. The higher the pickup, the higher the gain, the higher the heavy.

    I had that problem too, where when I played around the 24th fret, the string would hit the bridge pickup. It'd still ring out, but the pickup would make a snapping sound. After about a week of that, I lowered the pickup just a little so the string wouldn't hit the bridge pickup when playing around the 19th to 24th frets (mainly on the high E and B strings).
