I'm a bit lost myself trying to determine where and why you've concluded that I said I wouldn't try adjusting my PUP heights. All I said was they're set now where they work for me otherwise. And also, judging from those excellent pics (thanks again for sharing them - I believe you've posted them here before, at least I recall seeing them previously), my heights now appear at first review to be at least in the ballpark to how Jerry set his but I'll follow up this post with some pics of my own guitar. And also, too, I'm not experiencing difficulties now triggering the 'tron effect from the Proton. I'm more struggling with that the triggered effect isn't yet where I'd hoped it can be. But to repeat, I have not and am not rejecting any advice and I appreciate and am open to trying any/everything. I'll revisit everything (including my current PUP height settings relative to the pics of Jerry's) over the weekend and return to post again here what I learn.
Oh, and I think I already noted this in a different thread but my thinking on my tone has and is continuing to evolve. I am becoming more interested in getting my tones closer to the maestro's these days. That's part of why I thought I'd try the Proton and also why I appreciate and am open to trying any/all recommendations others and you are open to offering here.
