Hi, Just got a new '69 Closet Classic stratocaster and to me the factory setup for the neck pickup doesn't look right. When I received it the bass side of the neck pickup was set flush against the pickguard, in fact even slightly lower. I have never seen one photo of a '69 with the neck pickup as low as this so I assume mine is definately set wrong. Most seem to have it quite high. Now I am terrible with setting up strats so I really have no clue what to aim for. So far I have raised the pickup (the bass side) about 1 and a half screw turns worth. With the last fret depressed (low E) the distance from the bottom of the string to the end pole piece is a little over 3mm. I can put up some photo's if needed. I can't seem to find any info on the standard pickup height for a '69 strat, and the Fender set-up guide does not include any pickup settings for the custom shops. Only 'vintage style' pickup settings which isn't very specific. So can anyone who knows a bit about the 69's (or owns one) help me out here? Thanks.
