pickup height adjustment
i really wanted to know what was said about p/u height, this is something that drives me nuts. on every youtube vid, i've watched one must fret the string at the top (last) fret then measure the distance from the pole to the bottom of the string. on this vid, he does not do that. what gives?? i would appreciate any suggestions.

I liked the fact that specific measurements are given for each element in the setup.

Gtr Setup & Maint.
Interesting, nice to know what a Techie does to a guitar. Have to admit it's not for me, I'll still take mine to a techie. Most interesting to me is the Floyd Rose. Heard of it but never seen. This setup is "not" for me, a lot of work just to change a string.
