just thought I'd open up a thread about this iv been tinkering with my epiphone dot, beautiful guitar, great to play and acoustic sound is really nice but the pickups always seemed to be lacking something they are just stock pickups and iv been thinking of replacing them but they didn't sound so bad so i had a look at a few pictures of pickups on the web and read about the pickup height and pole piece height and decided before i went pulling it apart i would mess around with the pickups and see if i cant get a better sound. first i lowered the pickups with a slight slant from bass side to treble then i plugged in to my amp on the clean channel and sat there for about 15-20 minuets and adjusted the pole pieces to get more definition between the strings by the time i had finished i was amazed at the improvement in the sound. so if your wanting a bit more bang for your buck with your pickups have a tinker with them. anyone else have a go at this before. most people i know tell me to leave it to a guitar tech but id rather hav a go myself, "teach a man to fish"
