RG1570 Pickup Height

Okay, so what is the trick? Am I missing something? When I turn the screws on either the neck or bridge pup all it does is loosen the pickup, it does not raise or lower it.

If you want to raise it you'll have to remove it and put fresh foam [weatherstripping] underneath it.

Re: RG1570 Pickup Height

Thank you. That's the only way huh? That is what I was afraid of. What about installing mounting rings? Worth the effort?
