neck pickup question
« on: January 22, 2011, 08:06:55 PM »
hey guys,

I just received my BKP The Mule calibrated set (7-string), and only now I realise that the strings space, at the point they cross over the neck pick-up, from low B to high E is about 57mm, and the distance from pole to pole on the bkp is 61.4mm ...
I'm wondering how will that affect the sound???
did you encountered this problem before?? and how did you deal with it????
I'm a bit worried, as I haven't put them in yet...I will test them tomorrow...

Andrei :)

You shouldn't have much of a problem, if you experience anything bad at all. Things don't have to be exact here, just play with your PU height and screw adjustment height for a bit.
