We should maybe see if the mods can make a sticky post, honestly it was only pretty recently that I realized that most people don't know this, even most "guitar techs"--which is basically a meaningless phrase because you don't need any kind of education to work at a music shop and set up guitars.Thank you so much for this information. It seems obvious now but I was totally unaware. I have set up all my LP’s this way now and what a difference!! I did a basic set up in the way that you mentioned then I tweaked each pole piece a fraction to fine balance them. Wished I’d know years ago. Fab
Of course it's all personal preference, and some people like the fact that Strats have such a loud G-string because of the staggered pole pieces having been designed for a wound G back in the 50s, for instance. But people should at least be aware.
