I recently bought my first stratocaster and after messing around with the heights of the pickups I've been having problems getting all three pickups to have the same volume.
I'm having trouble finding the sweet spot between equal volume & acceptable treble levels. As soon as I move the pickups closer to the strings the treble becomes quite problematic. Moving them further away results in a weaker and muddier sound.
Are there any best practices / commonly accepted rules on how single-coil pickups should be set as far as volume is concerned?
