Setting Pickup Height

Recommended Posts

Like Kirk I play a Strat. Love the 5 way switch and all the tonal options it gives me. One thing I am not sure about is do I have my pickup height optimized. I understand the theory behind it but easier said than done. The sweet spot is supposed to be where the string vibrates in and out of the magnetic field but finding that sweet spot has left me a little unsure of how accurate I am being. Does anybody have a simple sure fire method for finding the sweet spot on pickup height? Regular guitar with normal string height frets at the last fret then measures distance from bottom of string to pole to begin but with higher action on slide what is a good distance to begin adjusting?
