    In this link Rex brown talks about tightening his pick ups to change his sound. I was hoping someone could better explain this to me. Thanks

    He says he “sinks them down in”. Means he lowers them.

    By lowering (or raising) them the strings excite a different area of the magnetic field of the pickup and the sound is changed. Experiment away young Skywalker.
