At leat I think they're called poles - the exposed magnet thingy on the pickup. I don't know if this goes here or setup, but here my little dilemma...never had this problem on my Ibanez, but on my SX my playing style sometimes (a lot) has me dig in...and the string hits the magnet and makes a pow-ish sound. Any suggestions? I'd try lowering it if it weren't for the fact that well, because of the pickguard, theres not mu8ch room for my thumb anyway on the pickguard pretty low as is... Suggestions?
