Which ever way it sounds best to you. I usually start with maybe 1/4 inch gap under the strings. Just don't raise them so high the strings hit when you fret hi notes.

I don't know about your guitar but most of mine have a screw on each end and there is usually some foam under the pickup or springs under the screws. Very few are solid mount, the foam may have gotten hard over the years but it should adjust.

Yep.
I actually like mine LOWER, but I also don't use as much gain as the other dudes around here. Here is what I do: Just start where the pickup is now. What do you want to hear more of? Bass? Raise it. Treble? Raise that. Another tip: BOTH SIDES DO NOT HAVE TO BE THE SAME HEIGHT. In one of my guitars (a rather bright one) I have the bass side jacked up pretty close to the strings and the treble side is down below the pickup ring, because it sounds better that way.
So, I would recommend that you adjust one side at a time, using both clean and dirty sounds. Also, with some pickups, lower the treble side until it starts getting muddy, and then adjust the pole pieces closer to the strings. Bringing up the pole pieces seem to give those strings a little more presence and with some pickups it thickens the sound of that particular string a little.
The pole pieces are for fine tuning, so set each side where you want it first, then if you need to adjust some more, use the pole pieces.

I hope I didn't confuse you too bad.

I shouldn't but it's all just in fun....

Tone, ya gotta break it down....dude, he is talking about the shinny things on the top of a pickup - the ones with a slot in them you can turn with a screw driver to screw each one up or down.
Now don't even mention a soldering gun to him OK?

Read my sig line, I'm joking with you bro, sorry I just had to do it...

What pickup is in it? I know they usually use the dual rail ESP pickup in the neck, but most ESP's outside of the 80's models had upgraded Duncan's in them. I would think it might be a JB already in there.
