    While i was fiddleing around with my action the other day, i made the space inbetween teh pup and the string too far, so i loosened up the screws to raise the pickup. but it seems that the little piece of foam rubber under it isnt very good, and so i put a new little square in. the only problem is, that i cant find the right distance between the string and the pup. so that is my dillemma, and i was jstu wondering if you guys could help me a little with it.

    well thanks,
    ~Slicks

    PS, if this helps, i have a p/j split combo (p pup @neck, j pup at bridge) with active electronics and passives pups
