I finally broke down and treated myself to a Tribute. UPS dropped it off last Friday. I am, of course, in love with the guitar. Question I have is in regards to pickup height on the two humbuckers. Is it normal that the lowest setting for both humbuckers is still very high? I have lowered them as low as I dare with the hex wrench, but still notice some slight markings on the middle position humbucker from the low E string. If this is normal, I can live with it, because the sound is fantastic. Just wondered if anyone else had the same problem and found a cure. By the way, I will post some pictures when I get some time. Thanks.

Congratulations Craig. Glad you are enjoying your Tribute.

I wish I could give you an answer with respect to the Tribute pickup height. On my Skylark the pickups were at a very comfortable height. I've been able to adjust them both up and down (from the factory height) without any strings touching. I realize the Skylark is a different animal.

There are a couple of Tribute owners that drop in from time to time and hopefully they'll chime in. Good luck. I'm looking forward to seeing a few pics of your guitar.
