Hey , so heres the deal. I've switched over from my peavey TL5 to a musciman and one major diff Iv'e noticed (Other than how much better it sounds) is the the pole pieces on the pickup are exposed and whenever I either really dig in or slap I end up smacking the strings against the poles which result in a "click or pop". One other factor is that I can only get comfortable playing directly over the pickup and just in front of it for slapping.. SOooo.. (yes there is a question fret not) how low can I lower the pup without comprimising my lovely tone? I figure it will lower my output volume slightly , but thats not a big deal... Any suggestions..??? Thanks!
