How close to the strings should I adjust my new Lollar pickups?

That depends a little from pickup to pickup. On a Lollar Vintage Blackface® set or a Lollar Special S Series® we recommend that you start approximately 1/8″ from the top of the pickup to the underside of the string (when the string is un fretted). Go a little closer for the high e, and a little further for the low e. On a Lollar Vintage Blonde® or a Lollar Vintage Tweed® you can actually start a bit closer to the strings to begin with. On Lollar T Series pickups 1/8″ is also a good starting point. For P-90s, start at around 1/8″. Humbuckers work well when you adjust them as close to the strings as possible, without any string interference. Remember, all of these are starting points. The next step is purely up to you. Don’t be afraid to adjust pickups closer than you have been told—it won’t hurt anything and you may like them as close as they can get and you can always adjust them farther away if you don’t like it. Many of our pickups have magnets that are not fully charged in an effort
