Pickup Pole-piece Alignment


Recommended Posts

I'm building my first custom guitar as you read this and I need some help in regards to string alignment above my pickups. On a standard humbucker (in my case a PRS McCarty) is it alright for the strings to align slightly to the right of each slug? The high E is almost completely aside from the matching slug.... how bad is this?

The magnetic fields aren't laser-precise and localized to only the area of the slugs, so you're probably going to be fine. If you can fix it, though, fixing it to ensure optimal placement is a better choice. How difficult would it be to address the issue?
