    Where can I find a 6" Ruler graduated in 32nd's and 64th's?:confused:
     
  2. just set it up according to how it sounds and plays, you might find the pickups closer give you a warmer/hotter tone, and farther more sustain and clearer.

    Strings might buzz or not according to how you play, and may need to make them higher, or lower if you play soft, or like clicky noises.

    All sain IMHO.:)
