I wanna check my pick-up highth and all I have with me right now, is a little ruler that measures in increments of *10's and 50's of an inch. *

I use the 1.5mm allen wrench that comes with the guitar. I adjust until it touches the string and lower it 1/4 turn. I use the same tool to adjust string height at the 24th fret and to adjust bridge angle. Works like a charm.

1mm = .039", to convert divide inches by 25.4 or multiply mm by 25.4, therefore 1.6mm = .063" or 1/8" and 2mm = .079".

Hope this helps,

I don't think you need to be all that accurate.
A visual reference should do the trick well enough.
