Two queries for those who play the Eminence: a) I believe that to get a good sound from the Eminence you need a fairly high action. What do you consider to be a high action?--measuring the string height from the end of the F/B. b) I find that the fitted stock 'Realist' pickup works very well at the nut end of the F/B but does tend to loose a little volume as one plays higher up the F/B---approx. from the D on the 1st string upwards. Have you tried other pickups on the Eminence that gives better results? If so what is your prefered pickup? Do you use a pre-amp? If so which one? I look forward to your replies. Many thanks.
