I watched a very enlightening youtube video about pick up height. Actually they need to be lower than you would imagine. I've lowered all three of the pick ups on my Pacifica 612V to 2.8mm on the bass strings and 2.0mm on the treble strings. There seems to be more sustain and less harshness to the sound now.

Hi, I've added a separate post about how I've finally got this Pacifiva 612V mk.1 up to spec. I just needed to adjust the intonation...that's a story in itself. But I was very much 'taken for a ride' by the seller' on ebay. Ah well, hard luck mister, after my DIY surgery on this guitar it's now a totally awsome guitar ...just as Yamaha designed it to be.
