    Hi guys,

    I've just acquired my first P90 equipped guitar (1963 LP SG Junior) and I was wondering how most of you have adjusted your "dog ear" 90 pole pieces?

    What would a good starting point be? Ie, should the high and low E be level with the plastic cover and then the rest of the screws raised in a radius to match the fingerboard - or what? Thanks.

    On my old ES225TD the B was raised a bit more than the others iirc.

    Mine are set to around 1.5mm from the bottom of the string to the top of the pole piece niece the action is set.
