Just wondering what the consensus is. I think my MIA jazz pickups sound the best at a position where my fingers slightly touch the back pickup poles when I pluck but I find that so distracting that it kills my groove and pocket. so, I lower them to the point where I can clear the entire pickup while I pluck. The sound is better with them up higher but for me it's better to sacrifice some tone if lightly scraping the magnets throws off my entire playing. Anyone else out there that has encountered this. Anyone out there who doesn't mind contacting the magnet poles?
