And here's the guitar in case anyone is curious
Ya, lowering pickup height has never made a pickup sound darker in my experience. It thins it out, less output less low end. That's the whole reason why people set neck pickups lower, match the output of the bridge and try to cut some mud.As for the Staple height, I'm not sure about the Gibson, but if I do bottom out all the staples to floor, tones won't go dark, just less volume and less bite. But clarity of the single coil nature stays all there intact. Just to say.
