string and pickup height

What is your string height at the 12th and 24th frets? What is the height of your pickups? I had recently raised the string height (avoiding string buzz), and lowered the pickups - less "hot" sounding with better definition. I'm using a JEM7VWH.

i'm about 2.2mm low-E/24th, and 1mm E/24th, and i set my pickups half the height between strings and body at the bridge, and at 2/3 the height at the neck.
unless i have an X2N or an Invader, then i'll set it almost flush to the body.
