S2 Starla & Vela Pickup Height Info?

My standard starting point for buckers is 3/32 from pole piece to bottom of the E strings (held down at the last fret).
Small adjustments from there to taste.
Depends on the application. When swapping between my DGT, my Vela gets higher pickup height to lessen the output difference and making guitar swaps more even. By itself, I prefer lower pickup heights to let the amp work more to get the same output. Exactly how much, I can’t tell you. Never measured.
