I couldn't get your file to play but the pickups do look to high. Hold the strings down on the last fret and there should be at least 1/8" between the string and the pickups.

Yep, what Jon said.

And, I would ad, when you're setting the pickups, plug straight into the amp. Adjust them up and down and listen to where it sounds best. Also, don't worry if one side of the pickup is higher than the other. A lot of pickups sound better that way. Once you get the height where it sounds good, then you can fine tune the sound with the screw pole pieces, if need be.

I can download the one from mediafire, but the one from Oron looks like a site that you have to pay to be able to use.

Ok, got to listen to one clip, your guitar pickups suck, there is nothing wrong with anything, buy some new pickups if you like the guitar otherwise trade it for something else.
