OK, I have a couple of questions here... I have an '81 Ibanez Roadster 924 that is my main bass, and I have done my own set up (I have done lots of guitars before , but this is my first bass setup) - I used the excellent guides posted in the sticky at the top of the forum, as well as the Ibanez and Fender guides, and TuneMyBass.com. My first problem is that my bridge pickup (a J pickup) has at some time in a previous life been pushed down hard and was wedged. I loosened the screws but had to manually pull it up, but it doesn't seem to want to stay up. Someone suggested that I may need to replace the foam behind it or something - do you think this might be the case? The split P pickups have lots of spring in them still - I can wind them up and down easily. The second question I have is exactly how to set the pickup height. I have some measurements from the various sites but the GW site says wind em up till they are hot but not too far or they will start to pull on the strings and sound bad. I guess I want to know: - how do I set up the pickup heights for a split P, single J pickup system? - how high is too high and how do you tell? Is there a change in sound? - do you balance volume across strings, across pickups or both? there's a big difference between P and J at the moment cos the J is so low, and I pretty much don't use it, but I want more treble and attack. - do you angle the split pickups to follow the fretboard radius (higher in the middle) or adjust them flat? - Is there any method to setting heights or is it all educated guessing? Can you measure string output or something? Any help much appreciated - wouldn't be asking if it were in any of the links I can find.
